In the cold winter of 2006, a pear ripened that would forevermore change the fruity landscape of the Internet. Its submission to DeviantArt by ursulav brought with it so many questions: Lol wut? Why? It eats birds?








What is that chipmunk wearing?





How have we never noticed the giraffes?








Why do our internal DeviantArt site metrics report a steady rise in pear art over the last 10 years that finally hit capacity last month, taking over our algorithms and resulting in an artistic barrage of our most popular subject to date: lots and lots of vaguely ominous grinning pears?











The world may never know. But we must cater to the wishes of our deviants, so it's all pears all the time now. Break out your forks, kids. We're having pear salad tonight.

Look at all this $%^&ingBiting Pear of Salamanca Fan Art!








We know you have Biting Pear of Salamanca Fan Art on your desktop. Everyone does. Fanfiction perhaps? We accept it all! Submit yours today!








Show your solidarity with your new Biting Pear Overlord and change your avatar to one of these fine pears. Or make your own! Pear yourself!














Get A Pear Badge





All eligible submissions to our new Pear Category will get a Pear Badge that will display proudly on your profile for all to see. Note: Having the Pear Badge prevents the Biting Pear of Salamanca from biting YOU!

It seems you can't have the badge if your work isn't on the right folder. :/

yes, I know, if you didn't put the image in the right category there wasn't badge for you. And there was glitches too.

so, I am giving my pear badge to the people that didn't get the official one. I will do a feature with those works. :)

Yeah, I thank you for that, but it's sad DA doesn't do this anymore. I mean, soon it'll be just an old trend, and eventually more will come, but what about the ones who arrived late? I feel like these artists deserve OFFICIAL credit for what they do, specially when it's for great work like this one. That's why I'm a bit upset about all this.

That's right.  One weekend wasn't enough time for all the people to know about the event and post an artwork.  They also weren't clear on the deadline.
Thank you to Linux-rules for all the time and effort to do something for people who didn't get a chance!

I'm wondering that, too.  I have been sick, and was unable to come here for days.

I think they should have given us more than a weekend to submit.  For other events, we get over a week.
