“I wanted to go out tonight, but the avocado I bought last week will finally be ripe…” (joke)

An avocado is ripe for only a very brief time, and there are jokes. “I wanted to go out tonight, but the avocado I bought this wk will finally be ripe enough to eat between 8pm-8:15pm—so I can’t #priorities” was posted on Twitter by Tanisha L. Ramirez on October 21, 2016. The joke (with several slight variations) has been printed on many images.

I WANTED TO GO TO THE GYM TONIGHT, BUT THE AVOCADO I BOUGHT LAST WEEK WILL FINALLY BE RIPE ENOUGH TO EAT BETWEEN 8PM-8.15 PM, SO I CAN’T” was posted on Facebook by SHAPE on December 8, 2017. “I wanted to go out tonight, but the avocado I bought last week will finally be ripe enough to eat between 9pm-9:15pm so I can’t” was posted on Facebook by Whole Foods Cooperative on September 6, 2019.
