There is, Google tells me, a film titled ‘Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death’. I promise I am not making this up. It has great dialogue:
Dr. Margo Hunt: Dr. Kurtz, I’m unfamiliar with the academic guidelines at Radcliffe, but I would think any major university would consider warring on the United States and eating prisoners of war a serious breach of ethics.
Dr. Kurtz: Always the cautious scholar, huh, Dr. Hunt?
And it gets better:
Jim: I’d rather have you kill me than make me a gelding. Oh my God, you’re marinating me!
That’s where I stopped reading and went back to Google. I was on a search to find the origins of the Avocado Ritz, that ubiquitous starter course at 70s dinner parties. I couldn’t find anything about avo history, but I did wonder about another search result which was ‘This Avocado Just Gave Me A Wedding Ring’. Unfortuantely it led to a ‘page cannot be found’.
My own version of this appetiser has spicy guacamole and no pink mayonnaise.
On the subject of digestion, it’s quite appropriate to note from the foodreference page that, on this day back in 1883 Gabriel Gustav Valentin died. This German-Swiss physiologist was the first to discover the digestive activity of pancreatic juice.
