Desecrating Fruit

Deb thinks I should blow up fruit this weekend. I'm thinking a coconut would make an awfully good thing to blow up. I'll have to put my fire helmet on for this one though. I don't think I need to explain to the emergency room doc how I got coconut shell sshrapnel embedded in my head.

So, fruit bombs. Yeah, I know it was done in Summer School, but those were melons of some sort. It's no fun if there isn't a chance of someone getting hurt.

Now I just have to find coconuts at this time of year. If I can't find them, maybe a grapefruit would do.

I use pumpkins as targets on occasion. They are very satisfying. :)

Yeah, I love the way they blow up. Also very satisfying to drop out of a moving car going 70 or so. They roll a bit and then explode. Fun with fruit and veggies.

Yeah I wish they'd done more with the whole special effects theme. He and Dave were great.

How exactly do you blow up a coconut? ha!

I can think of a couple ways. Both are probably illegal. But the less illegal way I'm thinking of is to use an aerial fireworks shell. saw off a slice of the coconut maybe 2 inches down from the top. Place the shell in a plastic bag to protect it from the coconut milk. Drill a hole in the slice you took off. Poke the fuse back up through it and super glue it back (or strong tape) to the main part of the coconut. Place a little silicon caulking around the fuse to seal the hole. Then light the fuse and run like hell. The gas created by the fuse and the lift charge burning make cause the thing to explode. If not the display charge certainly will.
