It says on www.wisegeek.com, "Believe it or not, the USPS does allow ordinary citizens to mail a coconut without any additional packaging required. The USPS views a coconut as a self-contained unit................It is just as easy to mail a coconut as it is to ship a standard package or crate."
We decided to test it for ourselves. Mostly, Aaron thought it would be hilarious to have his Dad open up their mailbox and find a coconut sitting in it.
The results.........It worked! Unfortunately for Grandpa Bruce it came $3.50 COD. Apparently three stamps was not enough!
