Avocado stab wounds are so common, doctors now want warning labels on the popular fruit

WTF 11/05/2017

The ones you love can hurt you the most. And avocados are no exception.

Beware the avocado hand

Avocado’s rise in popularity is not far off a religious movement, let’s call them ‘the brunchers’.

You know those wankers who go out and spend $35 on one slow poached egg on some GF toast, spread with duck fecal matter, with a side of smashed avo and an orange mocha frappacchino, just so they can take a picture for them Gram gains.

It seems some people’s quest for the likes, and love for the savoury fruit has gotten so out of hand, there’s a medical term for stabbing yourself while carving into an avocado, yes, beware the AVOCADO HAND.

Funnily enough I was actually cutting an avocado, and it landed me eight stitches in me thumb.

Apparently Avocado Hand is so serious, medical practitioners are campaigning for avocados to be labelled with a warning sticker:  ‘DANGER. DON’T STAB SELF.’

Is the problem really that rife?

Apparently it is.

Benny Boy has been a victim

“I have slightly stabbed the end of my hand.”

Kara speculated: 

I think that’s how Brooke Fraser sliced her hand open, cutting an avocado.

George caller Sam was left with “a big scar,”

“Funnily enough I was actually cutting an avocado, and it landed me eight stitches in me thumb.”

Stay safe out there avocado enthusiasts.
