Truly, this is what it means to be young at heart.

The View co-host Joy Behar revealed during Tuesday’s episode of the talk show that she was unable to come into work on Monday after suffering an injury over the weekend: She stabbed her hand while cutting an avocado. Her explanation is as follows:

“Saturday night, on my way to the event at the retreat, I stabbed myself in the hand with a knife. 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.”


Other than the stabbing part (fingers crossed), this does indeed sound like a typical Saturday night. Unfortunately, Baher’s wound was so bad that the 75-year-old had to spend the night at the hospital, where she was given an antibacterial drip to protect against infection.

Behar continued with her story, saying, “Apparently there is a syndrome called avocado hand. It’s real! The doctor said, ‘We get this all the time.’ And bagels also.” Haha does this mean I’m at-risk for “bagel hand.” Because that has the ring of accuracy.

Imagine showing up to a cat cafe, and—surprise!—it’s that guy you’re always trying to avoid (I do mean Ed Sheeran).

These cats are absolutely going to fuck up wax Ed Sheeran, but sure, fine, jut leave him there, catatonic.

This is the second or third story I’ve read this week about people being hospitalized over avocados.

It’s reaffirmed my method of using a finger to get the pit out vs. using a knife. Yes, I know all those TV chefs make it look so easy...But I like my hands intact. Also, sliced fingers make me woozy AF.
