It should be pointed out, of course, that whatever way you eat pineapples is fine.
There is no right way or wrong way when it comes to enjoying delicious pineapples. Except on pizzas. Nobody should put a pineapple on a pizza. If you do, congratulations, you're ruining two things and you are the sole reason why the planet is slowly dying and hastening our eventual extinction.
Anyway, this video showcasing an ingenious way of eating pineapples - by picking them apart with a mere twist and pull - has been doing the rounds.
Take a look.

So, does it work with just any old pineapple? Not really.
As with anything worth having in life, preparation is key. First, you'll need to twist off the head of the pineapple - not cut - and leave it sitting upside down in a bowl in a fridge for a day or two.
Take it out, give it a little squeeze and see if it's ripe enough. A ripe pineapple should have a little bit of give in it when you squeeze, and obviously, if there's give, that means it's easy enough to take apart with your hands.
Another way to check if a pineapple is ripe is to give it a good, hard shake for about 10 to 15 seconds and then put it to your ear. If you can hear a faint rattling, it's not yet ripened and you'll need to give it another day to make sure it's just right.
Every day's a school day around here, folks.
