Murdering pumpkins is a long standing family tradition. I like to blame IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN CHARLIE BROWN for this. In my family it's just not Halloween if we don't murder some pumpkins and watch the Great Pumpkin.
How could a place exist without these amazing orbs of joy that exist only to make wee ones smile?
I'm thinking the demon population in Antarctica must be running rampant. That's another good reason to avoid that place.
