MythBusters Video #4: Mail a Coconut

29 03 2010

Is a Coconut a self contained package you can put in the mail?  In Week #4 of the MythBusters Series, the Epic Team tackled the US Post Office’s claim that you can mail a coconut without a box.

The “live” MythBusters Team explained the post office WOULD NOT mail it and they had to put it in a envelope and BUSTED the myth.

I actually work for the post office n I have seen a coconut, a beach ball, a tire, etc been mailed as is. No container.

I used to work in a small store and saw all sorts (like Jessica) mailed through without containers, I’ve even seen a crate of LIVE bees with stamps on it mailed, a coconut would be a walk in the park.
