Pineapple…the Voltron of Fruits!


BGOBGAI! Quickie:

If any of you are old like me you’ll remember perhaps the best cartoon in the history of mankind…okay, slight exaggeration…Voltron: Defender of the Universe.  Here was a cartoon that involved the combination of five mechanical lions that, when joined together, form the one massive robot named Voltron.  Well did you know that nature has a similar item that people enjoy on a daily basis? Heck, some people even enjoy it on pizzas!

Voltron? Only the coolest cartoon…EVER!

I am, of course, talking about the great and mighty Pineapple! But did you know that the pineapple isn’t just your run of the mill fruit? Heck no! The pineapple is actually a combination of “berries” that are fused together to a common stalk. So the way I look at it, the next time your doctor tells you to have several servings of fruit a day, go with pineapple…you’ll honestly be able to tell him/her that you had several servings of pineapple a day and only have to eat one piece of the stuff and get back to good tasting things like steak and Taco Bell…hmm…Taco Bell *drool*!
