A fashion statement: a rant.

I see that displaying a life-size fake pineapple, made in either metal or plastic (sorry, resin) in one's living accommodation is currently quite a fashion statement.* 

What I can't understand is, what on earth is it trying to state?

Word To Consider Today: pineapple. In the 1300s a pinappel was a pine cone. In the 1600s the fruit was named after it because it looked rather the same.

*Yes, all right, all right, so I read interiors magazines.
