I once saw a chart that listed the calorie count for a quarter of an avocado.

Who the hell eats a quarter of an avocado? That's like listing the calories of a single grain of rice.

 
I like how I want coffee because I'm iron and salt deficient. I can assure the creator of the graphic that nothing is further from the truth.

Yes, the advice itself is more considerate and respectful than I would expect from that era, but the idiom you pointed out is pretty amusing.  Good band name - or at least album title.

A cliché is often a vivid depiction of an abstraction that relies upon analogy or exaggeration for effect, often drawn from everyday experience. Used sparingly, they may succeed, however, the use of a cliché in writing, speech, or argument is generally considered a mark of inexperience or a lack of originality.

I've seen that too.  Maybe it depends on who you are?  I always thought it was the right thing to do to share information with your friends.  If I know something that may help someone, why would I not offer up that information?  I mean, we are coming into these forums in order to communicate, no?  And in here, we establish friendships and share information.  Isn't that why we are here to begin with?  Why this paranoia that if someone offers us advise it's because they think we are stupid or something? It would be different if you were walking down the street and a total stranger approached you and said, "that color really doesn't work on you does it?"

 
It depends on content, delivery, gravity and frequency. If I tell you "Hey, you know you should open that door before you try to walk through it, don't you?" and it was the 20th time today I've said something equivalent, it may try your patience a little, no matter how well-meaning the advice-giver.
