Injuries and deaths from falling coconuts are apparently regular occurrences in India, where the fruits are used for everything from mango lassies to kitchenware. Authorities were so concerned that one might fall and hit Obama on the head that he ordered all coconuts to be removed from the area in which Obama is staying.


It's unclear whether the coconut trees themselves are being cut down, or if the hard fruits are simply being clipped; regardless, this seems little, shall we say... coco-nuts.
