Over the weekend I was at a party and heard the oddest thing about shopping for fruit in the Treasure Valley.

Apparently, if you are in the grocery store and put a pineapple upside down in your shopping cart, it means you are into “extracurricular activities outside of marriage.”  Not only that, but if you put a pineapple on your front porch like a jack-o-lantern, it means that you’re into such activities at your place, right then and there.

I was slightly alarmed by this revelation.

I have been known to buy a pineapple on occasion.  And as anybody who has shopped with a kid before, you know you sometimes toss your items into the shopping cart haphazardly.  It’s very possible my pineapple has landed upside down in my shopping cart and I didn't even know it.

What message am I sending with my produce to the other shoppers?!  And more importantly, how come nobody has ever approached me?

Is this a real thing in the Treasure Valley or just an urban legend?
