The envelop for The Order of the Pineapple, please. The pineapples go to:

Adam Gorightly and S. John Ross.

S. John Ross (Pope Leo). The mind behind Novus Ordo Discordia, the Gospel of St. Pesher the Gardener, author of Steve Jackson Games' Warehouse 23, creator of Risus and fonts used by Discordians, and "foreplayer" (foreword writer) for Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht. Patriarch Wilhelm Leonardo Pesher-Principle was a major contributor to Apocrypha Discordia, likely the first (and often considered one of the best) Discordian work of the 21st century.

Adam Gorightly. Author of The Prankster and the Conspiracy: The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture. This is considered the primary work covering Thornley and the early Discordians, and uncovered much that was unknown. The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic, Mind Control, and “The Manson Family” Mythos is one of the most complete compilations of Charles Manson and the Manson family. He is known as the "Crackpot Historian."

The Order of the Pineapple (aka The DisOrder of the Pineapple) honors those who contribute to discord and ek-sen-trik tendencies above and beyond the call of duty. It was first given in 1982 and is given each year on January 18 which is Pat Pineapple Day. Last year's winners were Doctor Demento and R. Crumb. To see a list of all winners, visit

Congratulations to the new winners! Remember to eat something having to with pineapple on January 18!

  1. Everyone has the option of declining the award, but through 2012 no one has.

    That remains true in 2013!

    Adam Gorightly gave what is the shortest acceptance on record:

    Sure, I like pineapples.

    Since I’m supposed to swear an oath, I’ll solemnly swear to minimize my indulgence in solemnity. I furthermore swear to mention this award most often to those who have even less idea what it means than I do, in the hopes of dislodging bits of blandness from their souls, opening their eyes to bizarre wonders, and possibly getting them into bed.

  3. Congrats to the new members!
