I don't mind shooting guns
With my friends with decadants
But I can't feed on the catfish when
My trash panda's overfilled

Guac is on the table
.45 is filled with salsa
And the roasted tomatoes
Will fill the guns again

"On the picture a lab analyst commented that finding bullets in food was "an incredibly common occurrence".

True. Just last week I found a handful of buck shot in a tomato and a howitzer shell in a honeydew melon

Not uncommon to hunt in or chase vermin out of crop fields.  Wonder where Sprouts imported this avocado from.

Also. Sprouts is not a farmer's market; it's nice, but it's a fancy hipster market like Luckey's.

"It is not immediately clear where exactly the avocado was purchased - but the Reddit post indicates it was bought at a farmers' market in the US.
The post's caption reads: "My friend found a bullet in an avocado that she bought from Sprouts."

That's some fine journalism right there, Lou!

Are you saying the guacamole wasn't kept at proper tennis temperature? She luckily avoided the bullet of food poisoning then.

You're taking 2 different quotes about 2 different incidents, and making them seem together.

The Prince Edward Island incident was food terrorism.  Someone or some people were running around and putting pins in nails while they were growing so by the time they were harvested the flesh had grown around them.  Effected potatoes were found in markets multiple states away and caused them to recall all the potatoes that came from there.  The farmers lost over, $2 million.

That is food terrorism.

Uh... You missed a few paragraphs. That refers to an incident where a bunch of nails were found inside of several potatoes.

UK rags do this shiat all the time. When they want to make something seem outrageous or to print something that's pure bullshiat to drive an agenda they find some random asshole to say it and then quote them, leaving out all fact checking.

Technically the paper isn't lying - "X says Y" can be true - if X said Y then the paper is factually correct, even when Y is total and unadulterated bullshiat and they know it.

Well, it isn't terrorism, but I don't think the farmer in question is referring to the bullet, but rather the sentence right before it, discussing a different incident:

It comes two years after farmers were forced to offer CAN$500,000 (£313,725) for information leading to the convictions after pins and nails were discovered in potatoes on Prince Edward Island.
One farmer dubbed the incident "food terrorism".


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/30/canada-potatoes-food-te​r​rorism-prince-edward-island

Now, given that a business is buying a buttload of metal detectors to combat this, that seems like it was a pretty big deal.

/but no, it is still not terrorism by any definition I've seen used

Odd that the culprit putting nails in the potatoes was never caught with all those eyewitnesses.

The second quote came from an incident where people were putting dangerous objects (nails and such) in potatoes.

I was going to say something similar, if she couldn't tell when she bought it, how would the employees know?  Produce workers only give a cursory look, because it would take forever to give the same attention a customer would.  They don't check with X-rays and metal detectors.

An armed produce section is a polite produce section.  Keep the rutabagas in their place.

I fix copiers and printers for a living.  Its not much of a living, but its all I got.

I was working on a copier in a warehouse on the South side of Chicago, and could not figure out why the main drive gears were not turning.  Opened up the units covers, and inside the copier wedged into the gear assemblies, were several spent bullets.  2 9mm's, 3 .22's, 1 .45, and 1 (best I can tell) 7.62mm copper jacketed round. There were no bullet holes that I could find in the outer covers.  Brought the bullets to the manager of the warehouse, who then called the police.  I showed the officers the pictures I had taken (which they had me email to them) of where the bullets were in the unit, then confiscated the bullets and the copier as evidence.  They dissassembled the copier and found 3 more bullets.  Last I had heard, they were still waiting for the CSI people to finish with the copier so it could be returned to the warehouse so I can make it work again.

Oh, and there were no bullet holes (that any of us could see) in the walls or the roof, so where the hell did these bullets come from?

It's Chicago, according to the media it's always raining bullets.  I'm surprised you're still alive.  If it weren't for all the restrictive gun laws those bullets wouldn't have been in there.

Oh yes it damn well is.  You can't tell me this isn't a very, very clear message.  Avocados come from Mexico.  Trump is building an 80 foot long wall.  This bullet is tantamount to a horse head from the Italians.  Imagine what they'll do if he gets enough money from Congress to extend the wall to 100 feet.

It would certainly change the story a bit if a bullet case had been found in the pit of an avocado as opposed to a bullet. When it comes to material media jargon mishaps you have to remember that those who can, do; those who can't, teach; those who can neither do nor teach, recount.
