Fruit, nature’s oldest weapon, struck again yesterday when an enraged customer at the Avenue Y Stop & Shop is accused of hurling avocados at a defenseless employee, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

Joe Testa, the 45-year-old crazed grocery patron, allegedly bruised the face of a female Stop & Shop employee after an intense argument broke out around 3 p.m. He was charged with a misdemeanor assault following his attack.

The employee was taken to Lutheran Medical Center where she was treated for bruising. She was later released.

Now… how do we fit an “Orange you glad he didn’t use a durian fruit?” joke in here?
