So Many People Have Hurt Themselves Opening Avocados That One U.K.-Based Grocer Is Selling Seedless Avocados

Just when you thought 2017 would end without any more ridiculousness, one U.K.-based grocer said, “Hold my beer.”

Marks & Spencer is now selling seedless avocados to help curb the epidemic of what doctors call “avocado hand.” Not only is there no pit, you can now eat the skin so there isn’t even a need to cut the thing open, saving people who can’t figure out how to cut an avocado from injury. That’s right. People have cut themselves so often while preparing avocados that the injury has it own name. Some folks on social media are very confused about the need for seedless avocados while others are just over babying a group of people who can’t slice an avocado. Here’s what the Internet had to say about these avocados.

The need to create seedless avocados to help people avoid injury is baffling the masses.

It is a miracle that millions have been able to cut open avocados for generations without dying or losing a hand. Either these civilizations are steeped in witchcraft or they are gods.

People ?? just ?? don’t ?? get ?? it.

What’s next? We’re going to start pre-peeling bananas so people don’t strain their wrists? It’s ridic.

Some concerned citizens of planet Earth are calling out what they see.

Damn. That’s harsh, buuuuuut kinda true.

Maybe those risking their lives for some guac should avoid knives all together?

If you can’t be trusted to handle a knife, just ask a responsible friend to do it for you.

That sentiment is being echoed by others.

?

Some people really tried to find a way to defend it, but came up short.

“Wasting grant money.” ?

It is really exposing the weakest of the human race.

Some are even doing the labor of explaining how to safely slice an avo without losing an arm.

So many people are just plain offended.

GMO (genetically modified organism) isn’t accurate since they are just unpollinated avocado blossoms but the feeling is understood.

Oh yeah. They are also not feeling this edible skin thing.

We’re going to need a minute to process.

If you or someone you know needs help in learning how to prepare avocados without hurting yourself, check out the video below.

See. It is that easy.

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Texas’s current power crisis from a devastating storm has disrupted power generation and frozen natural gas pipelines. The is historic storm has driven electric demand higher than the state has ever seen, but it’s not just electric energy being overextended as a result. It’s physical and mental human energy as well.

Recently, an image of two exhausted Domino’s Pizza workers went viral for showing the extreme exhaustion workers are experiencing.

In a post shared to News4sanantonio.com’s Chime In page a user by the name of July DeLuna explained “This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need.”

Little else is known about the exhausted workers in the viral image but it did rack up over 8K comments within hours of being posted.

“Dominoes better pay them for the shifts they’ll miss while they don’t have any ingredients. With this practical free advertising it’s the least they could do. Otherwise these kind people worked themselves out of already bad hourly pay,” one user commented.

“,As someone who works in the food service industry, the thought of selling out of all product in only four hours and how much work goes in to preparing that much food is unfathomable levels of nightmare fuel,” another noted.

In another response to the image, a Reddit user wrote “I cannot express to you how upsetting it is to be the only food source open during hard times, to still be open and show up to do your job with higher than normal levels of orders, and still get yelled at by management for not having orders out within a window of time.”

Images of overworked and stressed is nothing new of course.

Fast-food workers are often burdened by their field’s daily challenges. In 2020, food industry workers are being forced to endure customer abuse at even higher rates. Last year a TikTok video of a Subway restaurant falling asleep while in the middle of making a sandwich went viral.

“This is actually really sad. I can’t imagine how underslept she is. Not to mention the wage people get paid at Subway… She deserves better,” one TikTok user by the name of Monique Emilia commented at the time. The skincare influencer Hyram also commented writing “Poor thing… Can’t imagine how underslept she is, we’re too hard on service workers.”

CDC Warns Of Listeria Outbreak Linked To ‘Hispanic-Style’ Cheeses

CDC Warns Of Listeria Outbreak Linked To ‘Hispanic-Style’ Cheeses

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning everyone against “Hispanic-style” cheeses linked to a listeria outbreak. The latest food outbreak is attacking one of the most sacred things in our diets and people have a lot of opinions.

Listeria has been detected in “Hispanic-style” cheeses, according to the CDC.

According to a warning from the CDC, listeria has been detected in what they are calling “Hispanic-style” cheeses. This means that people should avoid queso fresco and queso blanco. The source of the outbreak is being tracked and there is some understanding about where the outbreak is coming from.

The CDC recommends that people avoid these cheeses right now and to make sure that the cheeses they buy are made from “pasteurized milk.” Listeria is a serious illness for the elderly, people who are immunocompromised, and pregnant people.

The CDC reports that Connecticut officials have found Listeria in some El Abuelito queso fresco. The cheese was purchased from a supermarket in the area where a patient purchased “Hispanic-style” cheese. The outbreak seems to be concentrated in the Northeastern United States and has impacted four states.

Seven people have been hospitalized because of the Listeria outbreak.

The announcement is a very personal attack for a lot of people. Queso fresco and queso blanco are very important for a lot of dishes in our cuisine and to go without, during Lent and Covid, is asking a lot of us.

People are kind of irked that the CDC didn’t use a different phrase to talk about the cheese.

We get that technically the cheese is in Spanish and that it is more commonly used in Latino food. However, the cheeses have names that can be used. Sure, there was no idea of the brand but would it really be that hard to say “queso fresco and queso blanco”?

At least it would have prevented other people from having to answer other people’s questions.

It’s called efficiency. Some news outlets were sharing images of yellow queso dip because it is also technically a “Hispanic-style” cheese but it not the cheese in question.
