In the last couple of weeks there have been an inordinate number of Coconuts stranded along the foreshore. Strangely enough this seems to happen a couple of times a year. Most are intact and in their husks and having opened one or two, most are perfectly sound and just fine for the birds!
So here are the theories...
I am open to suggestions!
hahaha, classic Python scene there Roy!
Had a quick search on the net and I think its a Hindu offering for wealth and prosperity. As theres info regarding them being wrapped in cloth.
Not sure why they are chucked in the Thames?!
There is an academic & well-substantiated explanation for the coconut phenomenon. They have long ago been washed ashore from the good ship The Bounty, & now uncovered at low tide. Professor Albertine
