How to get your goods to market - NOT!

From the Daily Mail comes this astonishing photograph.

Bystanders who saw this bizarre sight trundle its way along the dusty roads to market must have thought this driver had gone 'coco-nuts'.

In a desperate attempt to get his haul to market, a coconut seller piled hundreds upon hundreds on the back of a three-wheeled tuk-tuk.

But the precarious load looked in danger of falling off as the overloaded motorised rickshaw made its very slow journey.

The husks were tied together before being hauled across the buggy as the driver attempted to get his stock to market in the city of Mysore in India's Kamataka.

Perhaps it would have been quicker to have walked, as the vehicle was only moving at a snail's pace.

An onlooker said: 'The husks were all tied to each other using their own fibres. Crazy.'

I'd hate to get stuck behind that in a traffic jam!
