“Coconuts are mammals because they have hair and produce milk”

“Coconuts are mammals because they have hair and produce milk” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “I just read a book in which an interesting point was made: coconuts are mammals!  They’re furry, and give milk, and so they are mammals” was posted on the newsgroup Google Groups: alt.fan.monty-python on November 21, 1994.

Wikipedia: Coconut
The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) is a member of the family Arecaceae (palm family) and the only living species of the genus Cocos. The term coconut can refer to the whole coconut palm or the seed, or the fruit, which, botanically, is a drupe, not a nut. The spelling cocoanut is an archaic form of the word. The term is derived from the 16th-century Portuguese and Spanish word coco meaning “head” or “skull”, from the three indentations on the coconut shell that resemble facial features.

Coconuts Migrate!

I just read a book in which an interesting point was made: coconuts are mammals!  They’re furry, and give milk, and so they are mammals.  According to this then, the coconuts could migrate, being animals and all.  Not sure how they actually move though, hmmm….

Are coconuts mammals?
My friend told me that because coconuts have hair and milk, they are mammals, Is that true?

Best Answer:  The Coconut is a Mammal. The primary definition of a mammal is that it produces milk. Coconuts produce milk. Coconut milk can also be used as a substitute for blood plasma. So you can get a transfusion from another person, or a coconut. Mammals are also defined by the fact that they have hair, and coconuts are hairy. Finally, the edible part of the coconut is called the “meat”. Coconuts are not nuts. They have meat, blood, hair, and produce milk, therefore the coconut is a mammal

Coconut milk isn’t actually milk. It contains no lactose
