I noticed no one actually posted the real slang meaning of Pear. Saying something is pear or something went pear refers to "pear-shaped", see the definition for it (the first is accurate). Something that goes pear is something that goes terribly wrong. British/Ireland.
I just lost my job my life is gonna go pear now. or: I just lost my job my life is pear-shaped now.
