pineapple

it is times like these when i wonder…why is the pineapple the symbol of hospitality? so I did some research….it turns out housewives used to put them on the table as a centerpiece or some shit. boring. I am glad to know the symbol of my entire college career is a prickly fruit.

  1. dude! this summer i learned that pineapples were a sign of hospitality because they were used by sailors to cure Scurvy (the Vitamin C did it). so when they returned home they would set one outside their door to signal that they were home and well. YAY vitamin C!!!
