Grow a pear!

There are six pears sitting on a plate on the table. They came from the tree outside. I have no idea where the tree came from.

It occurs to me now that there are a confusing array of ways in which I could refer to these pears.

Six pears
Three pairs
Four pears and a pair
Two pairs and two pears
Pear, pair, pear, pair
A pair of three pears

I think I could be a while working this out. You are definitely not allowed to eat any while I do.

eff wye eye: the tree came from a massive hardware franchise associated with giant green sheds (rhymes with Punnings). It was in the discount section of their nursery, on account of being a little overgrown for its pot, and consequently cost a piddly $15.

(Lucky I popped round to provide this universally fascinating information.)

It complemented (complimented?) this universally fascinating post.

Given that pear is not a pair, it has no peer.
