A man in Vero Beach, FL was arrested the other day after slashing a co-worker with a machete. Apparently the guy wanted to take a drink from a coconut, and a disagreement broke out over the break.

So these two guys are doing some landscaping in the hot Florida sun and one of them wants a drink. Sounds reasonable, so he cuts down some coconuts from a nearby coconut tree. The other guy gets irate and tells him to get back to work. No coconuts for you! When the first guys refuses, the victim grabs a lawn mower and runs over the coconuts.

Now the thirsty guy, still armed with the machete from cutting down the coconuts moments before, whacks the other guy with a machete. Charged with aggravated assault, It wasn’t reported if he chopped down another coconut and got his drink while the other guy laid wounded.

The guy is also now being held for Immigration and Customs violations. All over a coconut.

This story reminded me of that joke about the race up the coconut tree.

There is a very, very tall coconut tree and there are four animals underneath: a lion, a chimpanzee, a giraffe, and a squirrel.

They decide to compete to see who would be the fastest to get a banana off the tree.

Who do you think will win?

The lion?

The chimp?

The giraffe?

Maybe the squirrel?

Well if you guessed any of those, let me know when you find a tall coconut tree that is growing bananas…
