Who said, "Be a pineapple: Stand Tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside"? No one is providing an author for the popular pineapple quote. When I searched for who said this viral pineapple saying, there was nothing! There were many Google results because many people were loving what I call the "Be a pineapple" quote but, again, none referenced the source. So, who's the source?! Well, I had to do a bunch of digging.
