look up any word, like blumpkin:
Usually found in tropical places, unless they migrate or are carried by a sparrow. They can be cut in half and banged together to mimic a horse in case you don't have the budget for a real one.
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts (do del le do) There they are standing in the road. Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head. You give 'em a twist, a flick of the wrist is what the showman said.

1) An often derogatory term for a south-Asian person to describe them as a person who although is "brown" acts more like a white person, such as preferring western TV-shows and befriending white people.

2) a tropical fruit which grows on palm trees. Has a green outer husk when young with a hard brown shell inside. White edible flesh lines the inside of the shell and contains a slightly sweet liquid known as coconut water.
South-asian: You hang out with white people. God you're such a coconut.
Coconut: I know and I embrace my coconut-ness, thank you very much.

The Coconut Tree is called "The Tree of Life" because of the endless list of products and by- products derived from its various parts. Food, shelter, fuel - name it, the coconut has it. The coconut industry is considered a major dollar earner that provides livelihood to one-third of the country's population.

A term used in reference to soldiers in Army AIT (advanced individual training) who fall for each other because they haven't been in the real world in a VERY long time.
When you are in basic and AIT you won't have many "love" choices. It's like being stuck on an island with only coconuts. Don't fall in love with the coconuts.

"Man, T.O. is such a coconut."

"That's just his coconut mentality kicking in" (when a black athlete gets penalized for excessive celebration)
