How to slice an avocado

Here's me demonstrating on an over-ripe specimen.

Cut into the avocado until you hit the pit and run you knife around the outside of the avocado. Twist apart. To remove the pit hold the avocado in one hand and tap the pit with the edge of the blade so that the pit will come out as you pull it back. Slice the avocado vertically while in the skin, being careful not to cut through the skin (the skin's pretty tough, so this shouldn't be an issue. Scoop the avocado slices out of the skin by running a spoon along the skin. For a dice, run slice horizontally as well before scooping.

It pains me to see anyone try to slice an avocado any other way.
