Order of the Pineapple Wiki

Monty Python

Monty Python and Robert Newport (Brother Hypocrates Magoun). were both admitted to the Order of the Pineapple on 18 January 2021.


Monty Python revolutionized comedy, but also challenged social norms, religious credulity and hypocrisy, and closed-mindedness. Seven asteroids are named after M.P., and “Pythonesque” was entered into the Oxford English Dictionary–but Python won the award in spite of those. And likely no one else was honored by having a wheel of cheese (“Cheese Shop,” “Blessed are the cheesemakers”) sent into Earth orbit. And the pineapple was the most feared fruit in their famous "Self-Defense Against Fresh Fruit Sketch."
