Tide finally begins to turn against avocados

NEW scientific research has threatened to bring a halt to the avocado juggernaut.

Researchers discovered the fruit’s ‘good cholesterol’ may not be as beneficial as previously thought, raising hopes that people might stop going on about avocados all the time.

Professor Henry Brubaker, from the Institute for Studies, said: “When was the last time you looked at a newspaper website without seeing a picture of an avocado? I’ll tell you, it was October 15th, 2012.

“Since then there’s been at least three articles a day about avocados, most of them with the same recipe for smashed avocado on some fancy bit of toast.

“But now we can begin to imagine the possibility of a post-avocado society where people who really like avocados are regarded in much the same way as tobacco companies.”

Jane Thomson, an avocado maniac from Stevenage, said: “Who are these researchers? Where do they live?  Are they physically strong or could they be overpowered and thrown into the back of a van?”
