What's the weirdest thing about the English language?
Not weird. Fascinating. The word used to be an alternative to "pinecone." The way pinecones grew on a pine resembled apple-fruit, and thus "pineapple" was synonymous with "pinefruit." Then the word was applied to this tropical fruit because of similar shape.
