Someone Made A Coconut Cannon (Really)

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A man walking his dog in Berlin was nearly whapped by a flying coconut, which smashed against a nearby lamppost. Police soon discovered a coconut cannon, which uses compressed air. Its creator planned to use it as part of an art project in Antarctica.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Obviously.

INSKEEP: Yeah. He said he was just testing it.

MARTIN: As one does.

INSKEEP: Of course you try out your coconut canon before shipping it to the South Pole. But for some reason, police confiscated it. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
