Amazon is selling an avocado-shaped pool float with a removable pit

If there's one thing us millennials really love, it's an avocado.

No, not the existential crisis of our very planet, not celebrating over-exuberantly after hitting two three pointers in a row while paying pickup hoop, not even - whisper it - saving up in vain for a house/flat/garage-with-a-single-bed-in-a-corner that we know we'll never be able to afford.

If the media and our baby boomer elders are to be believed, it's avocados that we prize above all other material things, it's avocados we're prepared to pursue into the very depths of Earth's core itself, to the detriment of all other pursuits; so entranced by the avocado are we that we'll forgo owning a home of our very own just to sample one more creamy, oddly tasteless bite of the stuff.

Of course, this is arrant nonsense, but avocados have become a part of popular culture as much as those horizontal-line glasses Kanye West once used to wear were, and it looks as though we're not going to get tired of putting it on some toast with chilli flakes and lemon for quite some time yet.

So if you're an avocado aficionado, if you've tried saving up for a house in vain only to quietly and tearfully move money out of your Help to Buy ISA one sunny Saturday morning for an avocado-centric brunch, then you'll most likely be enraptured to hear about this latest contraption.

It's an avocado-shaped pool float. And what's more, is it's got a removable pit in the form of a beach ball. That, my friends, is what we like to refer to as two birds with one stone.

One member of your presumed pool/beach party can float on the water, blissfully baking their skin in the afternoon sun (wear sun lotion, kids), while the rest can have a game of jolly hockey sticks with the pit-syled beach ball.

Versatile? You bet.

And the avocado-shaped pool float (pithier product names welcome) has been getting rave reviews on Amazon (where it's currently being sold) thus far.

One reviewer dubbed it "the ultimate millennial pool float," lamenting only that there wasn't a "toast float to go with it".

Others noted that there was ample space in the float to fly back comfortably, and gushed over its "adorable" shape.

At the time of writing, the brand LetsFunny is selling the float for $21.59.

So if you want to stand out from the crowd at the pool or beach this summer, in a world of pink unicorn pool floats, be an avocado advocate instead.
