In other dubious news, the only coconut in Mumbai will probably be in the presidential motorcade

Coconuts removed from trees in preparation for Barack Obama's India trip - Telegraph

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.

Does anyone remember all this nonsense going on before Pres. and Laura Bush went to India? I thought the dOne was supposed to be so loved in foreign lands.

I was looking a several pages of pictures taken of the Bush trip and they seem to be mingling and taking part in ceremonies, etc.

Since all the dOne is going to do is mouth what TOTUS tells him to, why spend all this money? Just set up a blue screen behind him and then project whatever scenery necessary for the folks back home.

Oh, I get it. "Cocoa-nut"! Huh-huh-huh-huh-huh!

Which reminds me: THE funniest movie title I ever encountered was a gay-porn flick about a White guy with a thing for swarthy Latin men. The title?

"Cuckoo for Cocoa C0cks"!
