Introduction: Monty Python Coconuts

How to make coconuts like the ones used in Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Step 1: Materials Needed

  • Coconut
  • Hacksaw
  • Hammer
  • Nail
  • Glass (optional)
  • Cutting Board (optional)
  • Skewer (optional)

Step 2: Draining the Fluids

First, take the Hammer and nail. Next, find an eye of the coconut, and using the hammer,
pound the nail into the eye. Then remove the nail, and set the coconut on a glass for about 10 minuets to fully drain. If a skewer is available, stick it through the eyes of the coconut, to further
allow the juices to flow. After take the juice and either throw it away, or look up more instructables
on what to do with it.

Step 3: Opening the Coconut

After draining most of the juice out of the coconut, decide what is about halfway on your
coconut, and saw away. Alternately, you can use a chisel, but that makes for rough edges.
When you are done, your coconut should look like this

Step 4: Cleaning the Coconut

If you pl an to eat you coconut, rinse it out under the sink, then using a knife,
cut out the white coconut meat. Make sure all of the meat has been removed.

Step 5:

After you coconut has been stripped of all of its meat, forming a steady rhythm, take the
two haves of the coconut shell, and prance around the house as though you were riding
a horse.
