I don't care how competitively priced they are, avocados belong in Waitrose, not Iceland!!
An avocado is a whole meal in one handy green envelope, keep you going for hours for less money than a portion of chips. Not buying this avocados are posh thing, you can get a whole bowlful of them for £1 in the market which is great if you're the kind of person who can eat a whole bowlful during that brief mysterious moment before they turn to brown sludge.
I thought better of you....
Would you prefer to be known as "M'lady" or "Your highness" ?
Madam will be adequate.
I heart avocados
And you can make 'healthy' chocolate mousse from them

I don't buy veg in Iceland. It's cheaper in the market or in Nour Cash and Carry.
On of the best tweets ever about a pear that can be as easily used for an avacado:
The £1 basic Unilever marge has now gone to £1.15 (after 5 years or so) so anything is possible
Sad to relate but the Thursday nights at the Prince of Wales are slowly being taken over by self-entitled, besuited, ignorant fucking dickheads.
Some bellend tonight kept jumping in front of the band to 'take' the applause to the chortlement of his office chums, and there was some coked up twat who'd been kicked out pushing the bouncers to the limit with his "don't you know who I am" bullshit.
There's still a fair few old/young regulars there so not all is lost, but the last couple of times I've been there I could really feel how the atmosphere is changing - and the bar staff and bouncers aren't enjoying it either. Such a fucking shame.

The "spontaneous" flashmob has been moved to Monday because the poor darlings didn't like the rain today. Hardcore! I'm sure commuters are going to LOVE this on a Monday morning .
Warning to Brixton commuters: all-dancing Brixton station flashmob moved to 8am, Monday bloody morning, 22nd May
I was in Iceland this morning. Didn't see them. Ru sure they are in Brixton branch?
Most definitely, they're in the veg freezers, in the one next to the one with the peas in, I think. Trust me, such a shocking sight is not one you forget quickly...
That explains it. Didn't think they would be in veg freezers.
I see the freezer for posh food that was beside the pizzas cabinets has gone to be replaced by extra pizzas.
an avocado is a berry, it's not a veg.
Mushy peas / avocado mousse - it's an easy mistake to make I have heard
YAY! The tide is turning! Say no to posh* food! Say yes to pizza!
* Including avocados, obvs.
Yes, it should be kept in the frozen berry cabinet along with cucumbers.
Correct. And the bananas should be on the herbs shelf where they belong.
You mean in the frozen herb cabinet.
And sweetcorn in the grass section.
Still I will buy avocados from the market. Haven't had them for a while. bimble saying they are a meal in themselves reminded me how much I like them.
The pizzas in Iceland are really cheap and good. They sell a lot from what I've seen at the tills.
Having worked behind the bar at the Prince of Wales for a few months earlier this year, i can tell you most of the bar staff dreaded the jazz night on a Thursday night. This was mainly due to people ordering spirit based drinks then rudely and quite aggressively making a big fuss if it wasnt made exactly to their personal preference, despite not stating that when asking for it. However, i always quite enjoyed it as you would see the same faces each week, the vibe was good, and the tips pot was always quite healthy. It was preferable to the kids on a Friday night, and the wankers on a Saturday night. I would notice at about 1am when the suited people would turn up, as they would have been on the piss somewhere else, and when everywhere would close they would come in because it was the last place open.
It is a great night for a Thursday though, full of characters and i was always impressed and amused at how fucked people would get despite presumably having work the next day!

Hipsters are now drinking lattes out of avocados
Do you see now bimble ? Do you understand why the avocado scourge must be stopped before it gets out of hand?!

I'm wondering if your argument is circular - in that certain Independent journalists may get inspiration from Urban75?
Same as eating (artisan) pie, chips and gravy off a wooden board or slate.
