To celebrate St. George’s day, 4300 British citizens assembled in Trafalgar Square to bang coconuts together, in an imitation of the horse hoof sound in Monty Python’s play Spamalot.

In doing so, they easily broke the current mass coconut-playing record, set last March in New York to celebrate Spamalot’s first year on Broadway.

London Mayor Ken Livingstone gleefully boasted: ‘I can see already we’ve got enough people to break the coconut orchestra record, and we’reNan going to beat New York in everything else over the next few years as well.’

Well, considering that we have a dozen palm trees on our small property (yum…buko juice), I suspect that the Philippines could easily break this record. After all, we hold the Loveapaloosa Kissing record in the Guiness book of world records.
