A myth spread by coconut haters.
And one would think a famous cook would fight to end the horrible stigma of succulent nuts born amongst the fronds of tropical palms, full of juice and life giving nourishment. But sometimes, you just feel like a nutter. I guess this is why I've never once seen one growing, could it be, they are banned?
In this link, a pit bull mauls a coconut to death. A terrible waste.
Here is a poetic salute to all of the things that kill us. Remember, according to pit bull enthusiasts, you are far more likely to be konked on the head by a murderous coconut, than be killed by a pit bull. In this link, they muse about the ways people meet their untimely demise, it makes them feel better. This myth has been debunked long ago. As for me, I'll take a piece of coconut cream pie. Thank you.
