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

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.”
