‘ The Swineapple ’ Is Taking Over Pinterest . Get porky with it. By Julie R. Thomson. That, dear friends, is what people are calling The Swineapple , and it has taken over Pinterest this summer as one of the site’s most shared recipes.

Brace yourselves : the grimmest meme of all times is here! At MemeGenerator you can express graphically a cynical remark and give the right solemnity to something totally insane that is about to take place.

That, dear friends, is what people are calling The Swineapple, and it has taken over Pinterest this summer as one of the site’s most shared recipes. Look at this thing:

Pineapple has been in the spotlight recently, thanks to some controversy over whether we should be putting it on our pizza. But this monstrosity (or delight, depending on who you are) has caught us by surprise, with its odd turducken-like qualities.

The Swineapple not only makes use of the all-too-clever bacon weave, but it also pairs salty with sweet, which is a winning combination. Josh Bush of LaPorte, Texas first made this recipe famous when he shared it with a Facebook group. It inspired many others to try it, such as food blogger Gusface Grillah, whose photos are pictured here.

“Cephalopods tend to boom and bust—they’re called the weeds of the sea,” Doubleday said. Still, if an intelligent race of tentacled underwater beings winds up outmaneuvering us and taking over the planet, we can’t say there weren’t warning signs.

We’re not going to sugar coat it: The Swineapple requires some work. And once assembled, the recipe takes about an hour on a hot grill. But the end result, according to Gusface Grillah, makes for some of the best taco fillings.

But seriously, who is making this thing? (Or at the very least, who is pinning it?)

We reached out to Pinterest for some insight on the pinning demographic. From We learned that while 68 percent of U.S. women ages 24-58 use Pinterest ― which is not a real surprise ― 40 percent of U.S. men account for new users. The social site is big with families, too. Seven-in-10 moms use Pinterest, and 1-in-3 dads.

And while it’s safe to assume that not everyone who pins a Swineapple will actually make one, 79 percent of people who use Pinterest actually make food and ingredient purchases as a result of what they find on the site ... so you can bet some people will.

If that’s you, check out Gusface Grillah’s recipe for The Swineapple. And go hog heaven this summer.
