    Why do people eat pineapple that comes out of a can?
    I looked in the fridge for a little snack and saw my wife cut up a pineapple.. mmmm.
    Taking a bite - I was once again perplexed by the fact that most pineapple eaten in America is out of a can...when the real thing is 5,000 times better.

    Sad really...
    It reminds me also of how asparagus is thought by most people as a disgusting vegetable with no taste. But if cooked properly and lightly seasoned with salt/pepper/butter...they are great.
    Sad....but then again...people like tator tots.
