The innocuous green fruit strikes again. This time “comedienne” Joy Behar of The View suffered the self-inflicted knife-wound known as Avocado Hand.
From Page 6:
“Saturday night, on my way to the event at the retreat, I stabbed myself in the hand with a knife,” she explained. “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!”
At the hospital, where the 75-year-old stayed overnight and was administered an antibacterial drip to ward off infection, Behar was told that this sort of accident happens all the time.
With her track record of hoplophobia, I am surprised that Behar is not calling for all knives to be dulled. Don’t laugh, there is a UK surgeon urging a program to grind the points off kitchen knives. Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.
