We're obliged to all of you who follow El Reg's world-beating improbable Swedish news for pointing us in the direction of the shock case of the Japanese pop pineapple who was over the weekend beaten and relieved of 20,000 kronor (£1,680-ish or ¥252,167) worth of camera kit. No laughing matter, we know, and certainly not for …
playmobil photograph evidence
I'm sure a certain Transformer would have been involved somehow......
for the pictures.
for an ElReg™ Reconstruction.
"He was hit so hard that he lost a filling"
And no mention of lost pineapple fillings??
another sorry story...
from the increasingly violent and brutal oiks who haunt the towns of southern Sweden.
I know it's Monday morning so ...
...that's probably why I didn't understand a single word of that.
WTF is a pop pineapple?
30-something infidelity-froth ballad correction
The Rupert Holmes song is in fact called "Escape (The Pina Collada Song)".
And yes, it's as awful as you remember it.
Dressed as a WHAT?
Pineapples in Sweden? The Japanese are just plain weird sometimes ...
The original version of the story
Quick explanation of those song titles from an ex-pat living in Sweden...
My Favourite Tofflor - (Tofflor is Swedish for slippers so 'My Favourite Slippers')
Suddenly Sibylla - (Sibylla is a famous chain of hot dog stands)
Ramlösa - (Ramlösa is a popular brand of mineral water)
....I'll get my coat
No doubt he has recorded Suddenly, Sibylla and Ramlosa
No kiddin'. Check out his discography.

AAAAA-GAAAAA-DOO DOO DOO! Push pineapple, shake the tree...
Geez, you people at The Reg are slipping. This was a perfect story to break out that old Black Lace song.
Paris... because she'd look pretty darn hot in black lace.
(What's a nice pineapple like you doing in a place like this?)
the reason none of those " you're slipping" related remarks were made is obvo... black helicopters are investigating, questions are being advanced to the locals , and the usual suspects have been half-inched all round.
mustn't appear too knowledgeable you know. bad for business , that.
I grew up in that neighborhood... I can *SO* picture it now... "eeeey, leeen... whuzz wiff de pineappl...*POP* *CRASH* *OOOOOWWWW*
Oh, it gets better!
Apparently this pinepple freak made a PLAYMOBIL video for his track 'Made in Sweden' See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdLcwOFD2n8
