Obama Puts The Lame In The Cocount

By Wyatt Earp | November 5, 2010

Any time President Obama travels abroad, the U.S. Secret Service must plan for any threat. This is especially true for the president’s upcoming ten-day Asian trip. In India for instance, the threats are varied, and they can come from terrorists, anarchists, and even coconuts.

Yeah, that’s right: I said a threat from coconuts.

India is preparing for Barack Obama’s first visit to the country by removing coconuts from palm trees in Mumbai to protect the US president. All coconuts around the city’s Gandhi museum, one of Mr Obama’s stops in the city, are being taken down. Mani Bhavan, where Mahatma Gandhi stayed during his freedom struggle against the British, is among five places the US president is visiting in Mumbai.

“We told the authorities to remove the dry coconuts from trees near the building. Why take a chance?” Mani Bhavan’s executive secretary, Meghshyam Ajgaonkar, told the BBC.

Every year in India people are injured or even killed by falling coconuts.

I’d comment further, but this entire story is racissssst!

    Sounds like the government is taking no chance that Biden will become president.

    A little Nilsson music, eh?
    How about this…

    Whack the liar with a coconut
    Whack them both together
    Whack his wife with a coconut
    Then you’ll feel better
