How do they figure this stuff??

I just read that the FDA has increased the "official" serving size from 1/5 of an avocado, all the way up to 1/3.

What??

These people have never eaten an avocado.

If you're interested in a 1/3 (erg!) serving; the FDA says it comes out to:
-- 80 calories
-- zero sodium and cholesterol
-- Good source of fiber
-- 254 MG potassium

Like that "good source of fiber". Also a good source of OMG.

And only zero sodium until, you know, you eat it.

Ha! You crazy Americans. :^) Super-avocado-size me!

Next thing you'll tell me, I guess, mon ami Mike, is that there's a U.S. presidential debate tonight with *Donald Trump* as one of the two last candidates! Ha, ha!

... Oh. Wait. :^(

I can't even go there. I am so tired of people from other countries making snide comments about Americans.

Are we American's thin skinned?

Because we, like, never make jokes about folks from other countries. LOL

Debate night: perfect time for a big bowl of guacamole. With at least 3 FDA servings of avocado!

:clown2:

The Donald is extremely thin-skinned, in my Canadian opinion, very much confirmed after watching him last night.

BTW, I certainly don't want to offend anyone, especially mtj, who is helping to keep these forums alive.
