“Not yet. Not yet. Not yet. EAT ME NOW. Too late.—Avocados”

Avocados spoil quickly. This was posted by Hughes on July 8, 2013, responding to a comment about “the three minute window of avocado ripeness”:

“Can I eat you yet?”
“No”
“Can I eat you yet?”
“No”
“Can I eat you yet?”
“No”
“Can I…”
“QUICK EAT ME NOW… TOO LATE!”

“Not yet

The avocado joke has been printed on many images.

There is no middle class pain so great as the one of missing the three minute window of avocado ripeness.

If you are an avocado eater, you are likely all too familiar with the crushingly accurate joke making the rounds on the internet about the beloved fruit’s short window of ripeness: Not yet, not yet, not yet, EAT ME NOW, too late.
