We might currently be on the brink of nuclear annihilation by North Korea, but there’s a far more pressing crisis facing us right now.
The Australian reports that we could experience an avocado shortage over the summer months thanks to our fiendish devotion to the fruit.
Retailers and restaurants reportedly may need to seek supplies from across the ditch, as our home grown sources have struggled to keep up with the demand.
Australia’s obsession with smashed avo has doubled in the past decade, with the average person chowing down 3.5 kilograms of the good stuff each year.
And while we’ve given up the dream of home ownership in favour of the delicious morsel, we may balk at the no doubt inflated price of avos should the avo-pocalypse actually occur.
