Iterations: “It’s Delicate, But Potent”

It’s almost Halloween, which means that all of your grown up friends with kids will be crowding up your Facebook News Feed with ridiculous photos of 2-year-olds dressed as the Incredible Hulk.

Think you can do better? Show us in the comments. My mom is going to be dressing some Square readers up for Christmas, so stay tuned kids.
