Order of the Pineapple Wiki

Alien (aka Alien) is the first person admitted to the Order of the Pineapple which happened on 18 January 1982.


Alien was the co-founding vice president of the Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks Cluborguild which was honored for the 1981-1982 school year as Most Active New Club on Campus. In addition to being student government president and a State Board member of California Community College Student Government Association, Alien was a comedic author and actor. Alien and Zeus came up with the idea of running a friend for Homecoming Queen with a bag over her head. Alien had also been brought up on formal charges by the college (largely for investigations of the administration) which had been dropped by the time the pineapple was awarded.[1]'


"The Order of the Pineapple has been awarded to some very worthy people for some very worthy reasons. But that doesn't include me.

"Zeus and I conceived the Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks Cluborguild and wrote the group's constitution in 1981, yes. But the meetings were originally scheduled when I had a class or student government work or some such, and I couldn't go. I did nothing with the club. One day I finally could make a meeting, and was amazed to see Zeus had assembled a sizable bunch of wacky, creative, fun people. I got very active later on, but Zeus got the guild going.

The pineapple was given to me by the club on 18 January 1982, Robert Anton Wilson's 50th birthday, as a joke. Sorry to disappoint you, but I think the pineapple had nothing to do with an award. I was, however, the one who decided to give a pineapple to someone the next year on the same date as a tongue-in-cheek award. I also started the tradition of eating pineapple on Pat Pineapple Day, and have eaten it every January 18 since 1983. So while I got the "Pat Pineapple Award"; without deserving it, I did transform a joke gift into The Order of The Pineapple, so essentially created the Order.
