Yes, it’s time to announce the new inductees into the Order of the Pineapple:
His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon and Miley Spears.
Miley Spears: She wrote or co-wrote “Discordianism” and got two articles on Discordian American Princesses featured on Uncyclopedia, and was the primary influence behind making DAPs its own category. Miley wrote or co-wrote Discordian items for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht, s23.org wiki, Urban Dictionary, and Intermittens Magazine, and also writes for Wikipedia.
His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon (aka Rev. DrJon Swabey): He compiled what is probably the 21st century’s first Discordian tome Apocrypha Discordia which included both new and old-but-previously-unknown Discordian material. DrJon retrieved an early version (thought at the time to be the first) of Principia Discordia, and wrote an outroduction for the first hardback edition since 1976 for Principia Discordia.
The Order, sometimes called the DisOrder of the Pineapple, began in 1982 and is awarded on 18 January. It was begun by the Ek-sen-triks Cluborguild and honors those who have given extraordinary service in “the participatorial study of comedic attitudes and eccentric tendencies.”
Last year’s winners were Adam Gorightly and S. John Ross (Pope Leo), and other winners this decade were Alan Moore, Dr. Demento, Professor Cramulus, Professor Mu-Chao, R. Crumb, and Sondra London. So far no one’s turned down the award — without quoting Groucho Marx.
Congratulations to the new winners! Remember to eat something having to with pineapple on January 18!
