If you are part of a train, you're not a virgin.

Must be British slang.

Taking the piss is a Commonwealth term meaning to take liberties at the expense of others, or to be joking, or to be unreasonable. It is a shortening of the idiom taking the piss out of, which is an expression meaning to mock, tease, joke, ridicule, or scoff.

How, precisely, does one overuse an avocado?

I'm far too old to be a millennial, so perhaps I cannot grasp the concept properly.

Wait a few more years, at a 1,000 y/o, you'll technically be a millennial

From the ages 8-14 avocado toast was my favorite after school snack.

I liked it before it was cool therefore I'm cool.

Chlorophyll butter is amazing and toast is a highly convenient delivery mechanism for it.  Nothing wrong with it at all.

The PR stunt was roundly criticized on Twitter

I am surprised by nothing in this article except for this line. I feel astonished and humbled by the depth of its unimportance.

Growing up we had a big avocado tree in the front yard.damn avocados were so plentiful that scraping guacamole off the driveway was a seasonal chore...

It's the same thing as a certain attractive and successful demographic and their supposed preference for watermelon. It's a mean joke meant to ridicule a group of people for being, you know...

...

different.

Anyone can overuse an avocado if they're brave enough.

My generation should get a discount if they bring a shrubbery.
 
2018-03-14 06:31:34 AM  
A discount for 26-30 year olds seems to be a very strange age bracket.  I assume they mean 16-30 year olds ... surely.

ktybear: can't get a house if you eat smashed avo on toast


Yeah the $1.29 loaf of bread and $1 avocado I bought yesterday is why I can't buy a house. I was almost there... but $2.29 in food ended the dream.  Hahaha.

You know, I wouldn't really want to eat avocado toast, but that's just because I don't really like toast.  The avocados are fine.

And that google was interesting.  It seems to be a fuss about some asshole who thinks millennials aren't buying houses because they're eating toast.  The sheer idiocy involved there is stunning.

/Not a millennial.

There were avocados in the UK, but Richard Branson bought them all.

I mean, there still are avocados in the UK, but everyone who wanted one just bought it at a higher price from Richard Branson.  Gotta pay for all those virgins somehow.
