These Pineapple Jack-O'-Lanterns Are Way Creepier Than They Should Be 😱
(@hashtagval/Instagram)

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.

Have you ever rolled your eyes as a friend tried to convince you to try the latest fad, eat at a restaurant that had not appealed to you, or watch a movie or TV show that didn't spark your fancy?

Then, after reading about it more, discover it was all that was missing from your life?

Or, on the flip side, have you ever stopped watching what was once your favorite TV show, eating at your favorite restaurant, or partaking in the fad of the moment, upon learning a little more about it?

They say ignorance is bliss, and perhaps the saying is accurate.

Reading up on various fads, foods and movies has the potential to permanently change our opinions of them, for better or worse.

Documentaries, books, TV shows and films have all been made about the lives and crimes of these killers—many of their names are part of pop culture.

But what about the people who lived to tell about their encounter with a killer? What were these killers like day to day?

As someone who was forced to watch Butterfly Effect more times than should be legal, I've developed a bit of a knee-jerk NOPE reaction to the idea of time travel.

They say shows jump the shark when they start including ridiculous stuff just for the shock views (fun fact: that phrase comes from an episode of Happy Days where Fonzie literally jumps over a massive shark while water skiing.)
