Someone thought it was time for Halloween conventions to get a makeover.

Jack-o'-lanterns are getting a re-skin by replacing pumpkins with pineapples.

Are you ready for it?


On one hand, the tropical fruit is a worthy successor to the squash plant.

When carved out, pineapples can look extra spooky because of its spiky surface and leafy tufts that aren't so friendly to the touch.


The process of carving out a pineapple is simple and has its advantages as well, as pointed out by Unilad.

Once you hack off the top of the pineapple head, the contents inside can be scooped out with a corer and enjoyed later.

Unfortunately, a pumpkin's slimy innards offer less substance, save for the seeds, and usually wind up in the trash.

So is it a "yay" or "nay" for the pineapple jack-o'-lantern?

We say 'Boo!' - in a good way.

People have ramped up their Halloween game this year by hopping aboard the pineapple express.

Don't get left behind! Check out some of these spooktacular creations.



So sinister.


Instead of one pineapple jack-o'-lantern, a small family of them is next-level creepy.


You can accessorize your pineapple jack-o'-lantern in various ways. This one sprouts a pair of bat wings.


Here's a clever homage to the traditional jack-o'-lantern: a pineapple dressed as a pumpkin!


We have to agree on this one.




Both forms of the jack-o'-lantern – pineapple, or pumpkin – can co-exist.


Lighting is everything.


Martha Stewart noted one drawback about carving pineapples.

You can't draw your design on the surface with a marker because of the stickiness, so you'll have to carve out a face, freehand.

But don't let that discourage you.

Now it's your turn!

Spruce up your Halloween this year with a pineapple jack-o'-lantern. Watch a tutorial on how to carve one yourself in the YouTube clip below.

We're never that surprised when we encounter people who are lackluster at their jobs. Bad waiters, rude customer service people, dishonest contractors, or inept colleagues abound throughout daily life.

But it's interesting that we expect to encounter that kind of ineptitude far less with certain professionals.

On the internet, people tend to say things they likely would not in the real world. The anonymity of a forum or comment section--composed only of verbal contributions beneath made up names--compels us to socialize with less inhibition; we take more risks with the peers we can't see in the flesh.
