Yeah, true. It is supposed to be the kalpa-vruksh. But then, there were no cars around when they coined the saying.

Lightbulb Solving your coconut problem...

  1. Quit job.

  3. Stand downstairs in your building in your old sadra & tattered chequered brown boxer shorts, ensuring that your bike helmet is on your head.
  4. Pay attention & to & glare at coconuts turn by turn while they're still stuck in tree. Giving them names at this point may help you, but it won't help them (they're known for their identity crises).
  5. Wait for coconut to fall from tree.
  6. Coconut shall fall at some point in time.
  7. Intercept path between falling coconut & car with already procured oversized tennis racquet (not head with helmet).
  8. Remove helmet.
  9. Pat yourself on back for job well done.
  10. Go eat something, maybe have a bath, & return to coconut duty.
You could also consider selling the car & buying a bhaiyya cycle - given their surface area, they're quite easy for the coconuts to miss. You can have that painted black, & move your K&N & other minor mods to it, though I doubt all your seats would look as good on it.
Also, darling, you are a lousy driver - you drive like a girl!

This is probably the best excuse I've heard for a busted, badly driven & banged up car yet! "It's not my fault, it's mother nature's!" I've seen rickshaws in better shape, my friend (& I'm not even referring to Revvhead's Baleno) - GO GET A PAINT JOB, ya lazy ***! Call me if you want a good chap.
