Matt,

It seems you don't like coconuts but I'm not sure why.

Coconut water is a great way to rehydrate. The water is high in potassium and antioxidants. It does have a thick shell, but if you were the designer how would you make certain the coconut water doesn't evaporate?

Or perhaps you just don't like the taste?

We made bananas the way they are today so the argument is even worse.

Nihilist,

Ah, I see. That is an amusing story. People can get themselves into trouble when they don't do their homework. I know. It's happened to me on occasion.

I still do not understand why a coconut would cause someone to liken God to the posterior sphincter muscle.

Ron,

It's because coconuts are literally impossible to crack open without the use of a hammer.

Ron Cram said...

bcc32,

Not true. You can also pierce a coconut with an icepick or a screwdriver. If you are worried about Stone Age people who didn't have hammers or screwdrivers, well, they could open coconuts with just their hands. They just have to search YouTube to learn how. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PC9I5m2rW5s

It's a joke, Ron. Just relax. It's clear now that you just want to bicker for the sake of arguing. Here's the reference:

Matt,

I don't bicker for the sake of arguing. That's just not me. I didn't get the joke. I didn't know about the Ray Comfort thing so I didn't get the relationship between bananas and coconuts and so I didn't know why you didn't like coconuts.

I get it now. It's amusing. But if someone doesn't know the Ray Comfort thing, don't expect them to get the joke.
