Pineappular Idolatry

In the doomsday cult I left, so many things were idolatry. As a five year-old, as I was showing off a Hello Kitty plush to a lady in the congregation, she asked me very seriously if I worship Hello Kitty. In Okinawa, there's a big pineapple farm with all kinds of pineapple products and paraphernalia. A kind of shrine to pineapples. I myself love pineapples when they're sweet. when they aren't, I can only describe them as anticlimactic. Okinawan people are known to be hairy. This is one of the reasons the mainland Japanese put us in human zoos, calling us beasts. I was in a gallery when I drew this. So I thought, why not pineapples on pedestals.
