THE gap between those who buy expensive packs of pre-sliced fruit and normal people is wider than previously thought, experts have found.
Researchers at the Institute for Studies found that purchasers of apples that are sliced up and then sold in a clear plastic pot lack basic human characteristics.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “Our research shows that someone who buys bags of sliced mango from M&S has more in common with the mango they’re consuming than they do with a human being who uses a knife to prepare their own fruit.
“Most fruit is usually well packaged within its own skin or peel. Pre-sliced fruit buyers have some sort of problem with nature.
“Basically they want to destroy everything.”
Pricey packet fruit buyer Martin Bishop said: “I’ve worked hard all my life so that I don’t have to de-seed my own melons.
“Am I supposed to apologise for that? We live in a meritocracy. If people worked harder, everyone would be able to peel the top off a tub of chopped mango fragments with a sigh of self-satisfaction.”
