If they believe that a white magic practitioner can take any or all curses off a coconut, then bless their hearts, they should be availed of that service.  Nowadays, I am not about to laugh at such beliefs, considering the crazy world we live in.

""Falling coconuts kill 150 people worldwide each year, 15 times the number of fatalities attributable to sharks," said George Burgess, Director of the University of Florida's International Shark Attack File and a noted shark researcher."  (http://www.unisci.co...022/0523024.htm)

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Ain't that something?! Someone should start a campaign about how important it is to wear a hard hat around a coconut tree! 'A hard hat can save your life!' or (get ready for it) 'A hard hat can save your nuts.' (nuts, smarts, brain, head).

So, the curse manifests itself when someone gets nailed by a falling coconut. I guess that would make it a "self fulfallling prophecy."
