Uncle Arthur, Queen Bitch, and Aladdin Sane were all admitted to the Order of the Pineapple on 1 January 1991. This was the year the award was not given on January 18, but it was a triple palindromic year. This was the first year the award was given by by Earth Chapter 5 of the Ek-sen-triks Cluborguild for which they were the three founders.
A traveler, biologist, and human lie detector, Uncle Arthur was known for being relatively quiet and then suddenly flinging an off-the-wall zinger. His moniker is apparently based not only on the David Bowie song of the same name, but also on Paul Lynde's character Uncle Arthur on American television's Bewitched. Like the David Bowie character, he was a big fan of comics including Batman.
