You know the pineapple, the international symbol of welcome and hospitality?
A Michigan man used one to knock his wife unconscious at their home last weekend.
When questioned by police, the woman — the pineapple victim — wouldn’t cooperate beyond providing her husband’s basic information.
Leave it to a man to turn fruit into a weapon. But why pineapple, previously only associated with luaus and fruit salad and tacky bed-and-breakfast decor?
Granted, it’s big and beefy, and the outer shell would leave an interesting mark on someone’s face when it makes impact. Plus, once you’re finished using it as a battering ram, the outside layer should be easy to cut away…so you can enjoy the juicy fruit within.
Now that I think about it, it’s genius.

I lived in Boston for six years, and never knew Lizzie Borden’s house was just down the road.
(Random learning from the Internet #725)
Turns out Lizzie Borden and her poor, axe-murdered parents were from Fall Rivers, which is an hour outside of Boston. Their house has been turned into a museum and bed-and-breakfast, and was recently chosen by The Huffington Post as one of the “10 Strangest Lodgings to Stay Around the World.”
I would second that notion.
Visitors can take a “time tour” of the murders — even see the carefully preserved skulls of the Bordens – then stay overnight in Lizzie’s room or the rooms of her dearly departed mom and dad.
Well, that certainly sounds restful.
Of course, we have to remember that Lizzie was found not guilty at the murder trial. But the made-for-TV movie, “The Legend of Lizzie Borden” starring Elizabeth Montgomery, is what is burned on my brain.
There she was — sweet, nose-twitching Samantha — spooky scary as Lizzie Borden. After watching her re-enact how the police thought the murders had taken place, I was never more certain in my life that any woman was a cold-blooded killer. Based on her performance alone, there is no way I would stay overnight in that house.
If the ghost of Lizzie Borden doesn’t get you in your sleep, I’m pretty sure Elizabeth Montgomery will.
