Hospitals Seeing Increase in Avocado-Related Injuries

Avocados ARE fantastic, but apparently, people are having trouble cutting into them.

In fact, they're having so much trouble that hospitals are seeing an increase in the number of knife wounds due to people slipping while cutting open an avocado.

There have been so many of these that the injury is actually being called "avocado hand." 

By the way, avocado hand sounds like the most hipster injury ever, right? I wonder if avocado related injuries are covered by health insurance. Better check before the next time you make guacamole dip.
