The Order of the Pineapple
is only awarded once a year on January 18, and this is it.
The honorees for 2017 are: Connie Dobbs
and Miley Ray Cyrus
Miley Ray Cyrus
(honorary DAP name Smiley Day Eris) was a Disney Princess who transformed into a Discordian American Princess. She flashes the Discordian hand sign, sang the song '23,' changed her name from Destiny Hope to Miley Ray which is more like Discordian Saint Minnie Rae, founded the non-profit Happy Hippie Foundation, and twerked and spanked a midget.
is the first and primary wife of polygamist and Church of the SubGenius founder J. R. "Bob" Dobbs and the ";REAL leader" of the Church of the SubGenius. She has been an actress (primarily known for her work in childrens' programs), model, homemaker, and is the founder of Home for Slackless Children, an inspiration for Shamlicht Kids Club.
The Order of the Pineapple
is also called the DisOrder of the Pineapple and the Pineapple DisOrder, but it's usually abbreviated O.P. (The award has also been called Patus Pineappleus Bromeliadic and the winners The P.P. Bromeliadics or Bromedliaddicts). It honors those who have given extraordinary service to "the participatorial study of comedic attitudes and eccentric tendencies." The O.P. is awarded to very few people, those who are especially servicey. It's presented on only one day a year, January 18 CE, which is 18 Chaos of the Discordian calendar. That date is recognized as Pat Pineapple Day. Pat is the Mascot of the ECG and Patron Saint of the D D of the ECG. It is absolutely required that members of the Order eat something containing or resembling pineapple on January 18--unless of course they don't feel like it.
Congratulations to them both!

For quite a while, a known Discordian wiki hasn’t been edited much–until now. Since early January, Miley Spears has made over 800 edits to the Discordian wiki at discordia.wikia.com
Recently, Pope Hilde joined in. There are new articles on Alan Moore, Eristotle, R. Crumb, Order of the Pineapple, Jake Day, Discordian American Princesses, Reverend Loveshade, Rev. DrJon Swabey, Mythics of Harmonia, Discordians for Jesus, and much more including over two dozen holydays such as No Pants Day and Jake Day.
You can join in too! Check out the Discordian wiki
In addition, the Seti23 Wiki
is back up, so check it out and maybe join in there too!

The envelop for the Order of the Pineapple for 2015, please. The pineapples go to:
Rev. Timothy Edward Bowen and Pope Hilde.
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 Miley Spears and Rev. DrJon Swabey (who cited the St. Groucho Principle). To see a list of all winners, visit op.loveshade.org.
Remember to eat something having to with pineapple on January 18! Unless of course you don't.
Do you know Reverend Loveshade
? Don't fret. You can recover.
To help in your recovery (and in our project), we're looking for you to make short or long quotes, or even participate in a short interview where you can talk about your experiences with Reverend Loveshade. While we particularly want people who met the Rev. in person, we're also interested in those who've corresponded only by chat, phone, text messaging, email, etc.
Interested? Want to learn more? Either post your name and email address in a comment, or send a message soon to firstname.lastname@example.org
All names in this entry are Discordian names.
Once again, it’s a baby! Ms. M.C. gave birth to Wunderkätzchen at 17:38 hours Thursday, 12 June 2014. Wunderkätzchen (Kitty for short) weighed in at 3,858 grams (8.5 lbs) and was 52.2 cm long (20.55 inches). Both Mommy and Baby are doing great. Daddy, who worries too much, is recovering — but quicker than from the birth of their first daughter. Twinkleton is already wanting to help her younger sister. They didn’t think they’d get the same midwife as for their first, but at the last minute Nurse Velvet Hands became available. Untroubled Teen V (remember, all these names are their Discordian names), Ms. MC’s ,15-year-old sister, helped with the birth which was at their commune.
Congratulations to the family!
