The 10 Most Popular Coconuts Stories of 2018

Another weird and wondrous year has come and gone at Coconuts and it’s time again for that most venerable of traditions – year-end review lists.

Would you like to count down our 10 most popular stories of 2018? FANTASTIC, let’s do it.

Unsurprisingly many of them are quite salacious, so if you think you might have a problem with that, please avert your eyes and stop reading.

We, however, find it oddly comforting to know that controversy, sexuality, and general misbehavior are what people still find the most interesting – and we’re never going to stop running stories like these.

If you want to peruse some of the more serious and in-depth works of journalism we published in 2018, stand by for our Top 20 Coconuts Originals to be published later this week.

But for now, ladies and gentlemen, we present to you the Most Popular Coconuts Stories of 2018.
