The Upside-Down Pineapple

I used to make t-shirt designs for the now defunct 
REMO General Store 
Remo Giuffre behind the counter of the now defunct store.
in the custOMER designs section, and while I didn't design the images in the above t-shirt design, I did take all of REMO's iconic designs that I personally liked and placed them all in one design, as a sort of promo shirt for the site and shop.
Not that it sold that well though.
 Remo General Store to close
A custOMER with one of my designs...probably not one of the better of my designs though.
The upside-down pineapple I always thought was cool, 
but I didn't know what it was supposed to represent, 
if anything other than an upside-down pineapple.
Year of the Dragon at the temple last year.
It wasn't until I saw these white pineapple looking things around the fountain and all the pineapples inside the temple on the 2012  
Year of the Dragon that my mind went back to the upside-down pineapple.
I started thinking maybe these things represent the
 pineal gland in religion?
After all, the Vatican has something similar in their garden as well;-) 
My parent's pineapple in the backyard.
My parents even had a pineapple growing in the backyard at Christmas time, so I took a photo.
Even my neighbour who lives across the road has one on his fence.
Pineapples even have an (third?) eye like pattern when cut like this.
Maybe I'm just tripping out over this pineal gland/pineapple connection?
This is not me if you are wondering.
Maybe I'm just pining over the good old days of the upside-down pineapple?-)
This is not a picture of me either ;-)
Sometimes I just look too closely at things, I think?
Pic from the King Uke to me.
Thanks for the photo (above) of the uke, KU.

Of course the pineapple ukulele is one of the 'standard' designs. I guess an upside-down pineapple uke might be something played by an Aussie?
