The second pineapple, and the first to establish the tradition, was presented on
Tuesday, 18 January 1983, or 18 Chaos 3149.  Like the first pineapple given, it is
unknown exactly why.
The Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks Cluborguild continued to be active in 1983. It was either this year or the
next that
The Unknown Homecoming King candidate ran for homecoming king with a bag
over his head.  This was supposedly to enable the rescue of
The Unknown Homecoming
Queen candidate. An article later appeared in a magazine that told about the club, including
mentioning the alleged rescue attempts by Captain Parasite who had a side kick named
Fungi (or Fun Guy) which the captain insisted on calling "Fungus Face."
CAPTAIN
PARASITE
While it is unknown specifically why Captain Parasite was awarded, the captain was an
active member of the Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks Cluborguild. He was also an actor, writer, and a clown
who performed for various groups (all under names different than Captain Parasite).
His legal name is believed to have been Chris B. Like many of the original cluborguild
members, he later became active in the Society for Creative Anachronism.

If anyone has more information on CP, they are invited to submit it (see our email
address on our
home page).
