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*!

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
