A hilarious prankster has added some choice words to a road sign in Victoria, giving a nod to the much-maligned smashed avocado.
Spotted on a road sign 13 kilometres outside of Avoca in central Victoria on the Sunraysia Highway, a witty scribbler added “DO” to the end of “Avoca”, a dollar sign in front of the 13, and “smashed” above the lot.
No longer just distance marker, the road sign now resembles a trendy menu – flogging smashed avocado for $13.
Someone has been defacing vicroad’s highway signage precisely 13 km from the township of Avoca in Central Victoria. And, no, it wasn’t me. But I must say I very much admire their handiwork. #smashedavocado #avocado #smashedavo pic.twitter.com/klZOLRS0YM— Bernard Salt AM (@BernardSalt) April 15, 2018
Bernard Salt, the columnist who is credited with accusing millennials of spending all their money on smashed avocado instead of saving for a home, tweeted a shot of the sign saying he didn’t know who had done it, but he admired their work.
Perhaps the only criticism that can be made of the sign is the pricing… $13 for smashed avocado is practically a bargain!
In all honesty, the modern obsession with avocados is truly something to behold.
And of course, if your proposal didn’t involve an avocado, is it even love?
