Is avocado toast the reason millennials don’t own homes or fingers?
There is an epidemic going around, and its name is “avocado hand.” The accident occurs when a person attempts to remove the pit from the avocado, or initially slice around it, and instead hits their fingers. And the danger isn’t present just for millennials and people on Instagram posting pictures of the delicious green fruit.
Ex-Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman almost lost her fingers while she was trying to prepare an avocado treat, according to TMZ. Her injuries were so severe that she had to get surgery to reattach tendons and nerves.
A beloved View co-host has also fallen victim to the “alligator pear.” Joy Behar was hospitalized after stabbing herself in the hand while trying to open an avocado.
She recalled on The View: “Saturday night, on my way to the event at the retreat, I stabbed myself in the hand with a knife. I was trying to desperately eat something, so I was trying to open an avocado. So I stuck the knife into the pit to get it out … and I stabbed myself!”
She vows to eat only premade guacamole from now on.
South Americans call the avocado “the apple of the winter,” but up north we refer to it as the “devil berry” after it attacked Meryl Streep.
Folks, please make sure your avocados are ripe before stabbing them. Or else your doctor will be diagnosing you with avocado hand in the ER.
