Jamie Oliver has waded in on the most middle class injury of our time #AvocadoHand.
Its got so extreme that some people are said to have slashed their tendons leaving them with permanent damage, even after surgery - more on that here.
According to Oliver, disaster strikes when people try to remove that pesky stone.
However all is not lost, as he put together this convenient little GIF to show you how it is really done.
So just to recap: place the fruit on a work surface and use a blunt knife as it'll be less likely to slip. Also a blunt knife cuts through the fruit's skin easier too.
To be fair you could probably just use a spoon instead of a knife to remove the stone. Fairly certain that stops you slashing your tendons too, even if it doesn't look as cool...
