Out of all the mundane and expensive things one encounters on the internet to buy, ‘natural’ coconut shells top the list when it comes to its bizarre price. After the picture of a simple chicken egg winning the title of the most liked picture on Instagram defeating American TV star Kylie Jenner, Twitterati have found another weirdest thing on Amazon, ‘natural coconut shells’ which they are selling for nearly Rs 1400. Shocked? Well, there is more to add to your shock, the original price of the shells was Rs 3000 and the discounted price is Rs 1365.
IPS officer Rema Rajeshwari took to her Twitter to share a screenshot of ‘natural’ coconut shell cup that Amazon is selling at the hefty price of Rs 1365 and wrote ‘Seriously?’ The moment it appeared on the internet, it garnered a lot of attention and Twitterati went all gaga about it. The seller on Amazon even used flowery adjectives to market the coconut shell perfectly and added words like ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ with it. Interestingly, they even warned that because it’s natural it might have cracks and dents. “This is an actual, real, coconut. Therefore, it may have cracks, dents and imperfections,” seller Century Novelty wrote on the e-commerce site.
