I Heart Street Art: Pineapple Palm Job

On Sunday I was supposed to meet with some friends for lunch at Herbivore (only because I have a free meal coming my way), but they had a hard time mobilizing, so I went solo to Mission Burger instead. At that point, it was so late in the day all the mandarin Jarritos were gone! With mild trepidation, I settled on pineapple. Would the super-specific natural and artificial pineappley flavors clash with the epicly subtle nature of my vegan burger and fries?

Well, as it turned out, I had a pineapple epiphany! Pineapple Jarritos goes GREAT with Mission Burger's vegan burger! The patty has some vaguely tropical stuff in it or on it, so it turned out to be a perfect fit. Pineapple is the shit! I pondered this for the whole rest of the afternoon and into the night, having never been a huge piña fan. I dreamed of pineapple and reconsidered its standing. I recalled the Dole Whip. I recalled how it's fun to eat spears of things -- because you get to say you're eating a spear of something.

So imagine my surprise when, on the way to work the very next morning, as I passed Duc Loi (home of Mission Burger), I spied a giant Skyy Vodka ad celebrating the glory that is pineapple -- AND it had been recently defaced with great skill and artfulness by vandals intent on FURTHER CELEBRATING THE AFOREMENTIONED GLORY. By infiltrating this big colorful ad with their big colorful fill-in, they've turned this billboard into a bona fide work of art. Most important, all sides agree: Pineapple is the JAM!
