The Great Debate

There is an object that is frequently used in some communities as a symbol of hospitality, to welcome people.

Some examples of the use of this motifCollapse )

Last night, at 1 am, in the parking lot of Nick-a-Nees, I overheard part of a discussion about what that object is. I thought both sides made interesting points, so I thought I'd see what you all thought.

What is that thing, anyway?

It's a goddamn pineapple.

It's a pinecone. (People SAY it's a pineapple, but where are we, fukken Hawaii?)
3(21.4%)
You're both crazy. I'll tell you what it REALLY is in a comment.

(I include the third option for completeness.)

OK

Clearly my last poll was a little controversial. So let's try this again. These things:





Are they the same kind of thing or are they different kinds of things?

They're the same, and they're both goddamn pineapples.
5(20.8%)
They're the same, but they're both pinecones (pigna in Italian).
0(0.0%)
The first one is a goddamn pineapple, the second is a pigna.
0(0.0%)
No, it's the other way around.
12(50.0%)
Who knows?
4(16.7%)
Who cares?
1(4.2%)
You fail at identifying things.
2(8.3%)
