What do the Church of the SubGenius X-Day, a joint Pagan coven esbat with nudists and Discordians including Shamlicht Kids Club, a supposed reunion of the Early Church of the SubGenius, and a video by Rev. Peas Francis Flanagan have in common?  They all helped inspire The Gathering at The Grove!

About 60 men, women, teenagers and children came to the private event The Grove Gathering in July 2017 and had a great time! There was singing, dancing, nude body painting, pagan workshops, games including the Cloved Lemon Kissing Game, and lots more. It may become an annual event!

Order of the Pineapple 2017: Miley Ray Cyrus and Connie Dobbs

The original drawing of Pat Pineapple made by Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks Cluborguild member Toby Bruno in about 1982.

The Order of the Pineapple is only awarded once a year on January 18, and this is it.

The honorees for 2017 are: Connie Dobbs and Miley Ray Cyrus.

Miley Ray Cyrus (honorary DAP name Smiley Day Eris) was a Disney Princess who transformed into a Discordian American Princess.  She flashes the Discordian hand sign, sang the song ’23,’ changed her name from Destiny Hope to Miley Ray which is more like Discordian Saint Minnie Rae, founded the non-profit Happy Hippie Foundation, and twerked and spanked a midget.

Connie Dobbs is the first and primary wife of polygamist and Church of the SubGenius founder J. R. “Bob” Dobbs and the “;REAL leader” of the Church of the SubGenius. She has been an actress (primarily known for her work in childrens’ programs), model, homemaker, and is the founder of Home for Slackless Children, an inspiration for Shamlicht Kids Club.

The Order of the Pineapple is also called the DisOrder of the Pineapple and the Pineapple DisOrder, but it’s usually abbreviated O.P.  (The award has also been called Patus Pineappleus Bromeliadic and the winners The P.P. Bromeliadics or Bromedliaddicts). It honors those who have given extraordinary service to “the participatorial study of comedic attitudes and eccentric tendencies.”  The O.P. is awarded to very few people, those who are especially servicey.  It’s presented on only one day a year, January 18 CE, which is 18 Chaos of the Discordian calendar.  That date is recognized as Pat Pineapple Day.  Pat is the Mascot of the ECG and Patron Saint of the D D of the ECG.  It is absolutely required that members of the Order eat something containing or resembling pineapple on January 18–unless of course they don’t feel like it.

Congratulations to them both!
