So I bought them.
Never listen to your Mom's incredibly young sister who isn't old enough to have a niece my age.
Ok, so I'm just kidding.
I bought these big funny-looking avocados, and brought them home. I tell you, have you ever seen the really old Tarzan movie where they have company (from New York or something) and Jane hammers open an ostrich egg? That is exactly what I felt like, cutting that thing open! Here's a picture to prove it...it was too ripe and a little icky looking when I got it open. But I have big hands, and it wasn't easy for me to hold this like I was holding it.
It really loses a lot of the punch if you don't know the scene in the Tarzan movie, I guess! Oh, well...take my word for it, it was funny!
