A whole new meaning to smashed avo

Only in New Zealand.  Perhaps not actually.

Two young Kiwis, for instance, face burglary charges for an avocado smash and grab.

New Zealand police officers began patrolling fruit shops, forcing the black market for avocados onto not-so-dark web sites such as Facebook.

an Auckland man reported a mobility scooter-enabled robbery (of avocados).

    This is veering into Benny Hill territory.

    Maybe the perpetrators “misunderstood” the concept of “smashed” avocados.

    So it is a completely vegan affair, with two Kiwi fruits (aka Chinese gooseberries) stealing avocados.
    If there are any worms in them then it is no longer a vegan affair.

    Yeah NuThink, but is that a garden variety green Kiwi fruit or a gold Kiwi fruit?

    What is wrong with these people – surly it would be easier to use the supermarket’s self checkout section and ‘accidently’ scan them as potatoes than avocados.

    The next thing the Kiwis will smash will be the Wallabies in the Bledisloe

    Get real. That’s just a brainfart, H.B.
    NZ is still a net exporter of avocados, they make more than they need domestically. There is obviously no shortage of it. If overseas buyers will pay more it is only natural market forces that drive up prices domestically. How on earth are you jumping from a spate of avocado thefts to Venezuelan levels of poverty, currency devaluation, and shortages of essential foods?

    Next you’ll be telling me this is a sign of real estate underutilisation due to a lack of mortgages…
