Our minds = blown.

We've always thought there was one way to eat a pineapple, and that way is sticky, wasteful, and usually ends in a trip to the store to buy pre-cut pineapple slices.

But, as it turns out, we were very, very wrong.

Dennis Naghizadeh (@DenzBenzi) tweeted this hack last week and blew the internet's collective mind:

The clip, which was originally posted by a user on TikTok, shows a pair of hands perfectly segmenting the fruit by pulling individual prickly spines. It looks like the end of the pineapple was removed before the camera started rolling, but still-this is a gamechanger.

Some people tried the trick successfully...

...while others had a bit more trouble.

Everyone, though, was completely and totally blown away by this news.

Even Lena Headley, whom you may know as Cersei from Game of Thrones, shared the hack on Instagram.

So basically, everything you thought you knew about pineapples is false and your entire life until this point has been a lie.

Anyway, happy Monday.
