    Why are pineapples called pineapples? They don't come from pines, and they look nothing like an apple!

    Because pineapple trees grow where there are no pine trees and they can't grow apples. They're trying to fit in.

    'The Spanish explorers thought pineapple looked like a pine cone, so they called it "Pina." The English added "apple" to associate it with juicy delectable fruits

    I think they're vegetables. No, I'm sure of it! And, they don't fall on me. I'm quick enough to catch them. F'real!

    I know Nick! Tell him me and Helen said hi! Ask him if we're still on for Bingo later.

    So, I'm trying to fix this speaker with my pencil eraser and it's not tasting very good. Hey, don't look at me in that tone of voice!!!!!
