Pineapple: The Other Forbidden Fruit

Now I know why pirates plundered ships in the Caribbean.  The only climate in which you can always hunt for treasure or booty (aren't they the same?) is a tropical one.  My own personal freeze on treasure hunting continues as the Northeast averages 2 storms a week.  Fortunately, several magazines from the 30's and 40's are supplying some dated enjoyment. Take a look at this elaborate one from Dole:
Funny, when I see a native girl in a grass skirt, "Glamorous" is not what comes to mind. I would be more akin to what the husband is likely thinking...Gimmee!   I really like the exaggerated humans sitting on the map for a couple of reasons. First, I think Godzilla would have an inferiority complex and second, I was wondering if the location of the couple wasn't on purpose.  Look, he is somewhere over Southern California, Tijuana and Las Vegas, and she is sitting in frigid Vancouver, B.C. That's just my opinion...I could be wrong.  What do you see in this ad?
