Brenton Clutterbuck was awarded with the Order of the Pineapple on 18 January 2019.
Brenton Clutterbuck called himself a "gonzo anthropologist." This was apparently a reference to gonzo journalism where the journalist makes no claim of objectivity, often including him- or her-self as part of the story which is often written in the first person. Clutterbuck traveled to a variety of countries interviewing Discordians as a gonzo anthropologist for the book Chasing Eris where he interacted with Discordians of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. He also wrote the books Babble and Me and My Hair. Under the name Placid Dingo, he edited two issues of Intermittens magazine, one of these a story collection, and was interviewed by the magazine, by Wikinews, and others.
