If we weren’t, then why would self-help books still be so popular? Not to mention everything we read on the internet. The "10 things to be this" and "1117 things to do that." Enough already. [Editor's note: NO! Not enough already. NO!!]
We have enough content to last us for ten lifetimes. [Editor's note: Again, no we don't.] We have millions of photos to distract us every day on Instagram. And enough silly videos to suck out any substance we may have left.
And yet, despite all of these forgettable sources, despite the idiocies and distractions, there are sources online that can teach us something. Sources than can give us something we like to tag #inspiration.
No, the inspiration I’m talking about are online platforms that are actually based on meaning. You know, like real art that does something to us. Or dare I say it, book communities that talk about something other than fangirling over a fictional character.
OK, so I do think the fruit can stand to be a bit less showy. I mean, does it have to have all that volume up on its head. And what is the deal with it being so big and then it only has about half of its size which is edible?
Shockingly, this friend didn’t find the pineapple joke all that funny. Rather than eating the damn fruit, the guys left the pineapple in the middle of the exhibit, just to see if people would think it was art. They didn’t expect what followed.
"I came in later and it had been put in a glass case — it's the funniest thing that has happened all year. My honors supervisor saw it and asked an art lecturer if it was real because he could not believe it," Gray told The Daily Mail.
So, does it still count as art, even if it wasn’t intended to but people found meaning in it? We can discuss this over a perfectly plated lunch of pineapple that we can shoot for Instagram because you know the avocado is dead to us now, #PineappleArt.
