The next day, the competition was coming into play. All the animals in the forest (but not the pineapples, for pineapples are immobile) arranged a finish/start line in between two trees. The coyote placed the pineapple in front of the starting line, and the hare was on his way.
Everyone on the sidelines was bustling about and chatting about the obvious prediction that the hare was going to claim the victory (and the ninja and the toothpaste). Suddenly, the crow had a revolutionary realization.
"AAAAIEEH! Friends! I have an idea to share! The pineapple has not challenged our good companion, the hare, to just a simple race! Surely the pineapple must know that he CANNOT MOVE! He obviously has a trick up his sleeve!" exclaimed the crow.
The moose spoke up.
"Pineapples don't have sleeves."
Figuring that the pineapple has a plan to make everyone look foolish, the crow suggests that everyone cheer for the pineapple. The race then starts and ... the hare wins by a mile, because duh, pineapples don't have legs.
The animals glanced at each other blankly, and then started to realize how dumb they were. The pineapple did not have a trick up its sleeve. It wanted an honest race -- but it knew it couldn't walk (let alone run)!
About a few hours later, the hare came into sight again. It flew right across the finish line, still as fast as it was when it first took off. The hare had won, but the pineapple still sat at his starting point, and had not even budged.
The animals ate the pineapple.
Here are the questions that students had to answer about this wacky-ass garbage:
-- Why did the animals eat the pineapple?
a. they were annoyed
b. they were amused
c. they were hungry
d. they wanted to
-- Who was the wisest?
a. the hare
If you paid close attention to the text, you'll note that none of these questions are answered -- or indeed, even could be answered. After complaining to the media and exam board, the kids did what kids always do when they think something is butts: They turned the most-famous line ("Pineapples don't have sleeves") into a meme.
