Oh no, not avocados! 🤦🏼♀️

Or the stages of an avocado when you bring it home from the grocery store
I like the man in the middle level of ripeness.
Level 1: Avie
Level 15: Avacdor
Level 30: Guac-champ
Was gonna say its the animorphs white guy to black guy
This kinda looks like the stages of heavy avocado use 🥑
They look like the default dude when you start a new game but in different races.
Why phrase the headline that way? They were arrested for stealing the avocados from their employer not for some kind of failure to get an avocado dealer's license.
Thank you. Here i wondered why selling avocados would be illegal.
They're a gateway fruit. Today it's avocados, and the next thing you know it's asparagus, then broccoli, and soon you're living in a cardboard box turning tricks for okra.
Sooner or later it will be legal and taken over by Big Carrot
Medical Avocados is a thing though, you know with avocado dispensaries and stuff
ha ah ah hahhaha haha very funny
Avocados are one of the most popular ways to laundry blood money (from narcotic cartels for example), but in this case its not the matter
Well if they don’t meet fda standards and are potentially dangerous. You can get in serious trouble selling tainted food. Also smuggled avocados are a thing. Stolen and then resold.
dont you need a commercial license to sell as a business?
Well if you sell avocados without a license then you're also bypassing all sorts of health regulations for example
The real facepalm is that tweet and this post
The Avocado world is cut-throat all the cartels in Mexico are fighting for control
Isn’t it something like 5c from every avocado sold at the grocery ends up with the cartels?
dammit is there anything i can enjoy without it becoming bloody?
OP said something they can enjoy.
I'm afraid to click on that link. I'm on mobile so I don't know if it's a rickroll or porn.
It's safe. Just a meme.
There is no ethical consumption under capitalism.
Its all a conspiracy to get us to stop eating guacamole.
"I will not comply!"
So, capitalism working as intended?
True fact, the Yamaguchi-Gumi Yakuza extorted a bunch of corporations for a percentage for a long time, the 2 thatmost people will be familiar with are Sony and Mitsubishi which means that every and anytime you purchased anything from those corporation you were indirectly paying the Yamaguchi-Gumi. It's estimated at their peak they were making $80 billion a year, that's in USD and not yen.
What do you spend all that dirty moolah on?

Why did they stop?
Only made worse when California wildfires took out the majority of our avocado trees.
We will rely on Mexico for years to come.
Where I live in Carpinteria Valley near Montecito and Santa Barbara has over 2,200 acres in avocado, and hundreds of acres in cannabis. We have a 3 day avocado festival every year, but cannabis festival is sort of every day. It's a $500. fine if ya hop a fence an steal an avo, but lots of people sell in their driveway 75¢ ea. Not the weed tho, that gets delivered at about $20. an eighth an I can see the Pacific ocean and the island of blue dolphins from my front yard (plus two giant steps). Beach, weed, avocados.
Yeah the post is a facepalm
Literally any illegal business attracts murder or human suffering. The Italian mafias run olive oil cartels.
Imagine if you cracked down on the American Mafia, but framed it as "police go after garbage disposal companies"
The oil thing is actually super interesting. Ragusea did a rad video on it
It annoys me that people are making jokes when people are getting killed, enslaved, and worst because of fucking avocados... Even if this post is not related to it.
First day on the internet?
No, but sometimes it's tiring... I just wish people would be more empathetic.
You can joke about something and still be empathetic. Comedy is a way to cope with tragedy. Be careful judging something at face value, that's the real apathy
People who get their fun by acting rude will eventually attract people who will think they are in good company
I imagine it's quite difficult to garner sympathy for something like this.
If the Taliban were to start exporting cuddly toys instead of opium you'd have the same fight on your hands.
If I remember correctly, they banned farming opium . Actually, under US occupation, opium farming increased.
Alright alright alright
This is actually kind of true, but is often presented without proper context. U.S. provided equipment and training that allowed all farmers to increase crop yields. Early on, there was also the perverse incentive problem not dissimilar to how the British accidentally made the cobra population explode in India. The U.S. didn't like poppy production, but found that aggressively stamping it out led to lower popular support. Todays Taliban is more likely to fold opium production into their economy than make any attempt to halt it.
I guess we should all look for avocados grown in the U.S.. I just read that the US is the second largest producer after Mexico, and 90% of our avocado production is in California.
Yeah, I suggest you watch the show “Rotten” for more info, it’s really cool.
The only area allowed to grow avocados in mexico is near where the Monarch Butterflys nest, it's actually a problem because they are trying to take more of the Morarch areas for new farming areas, last I heard anyway.
My neighbor puts relish on her genitals
Your comment is so odd I looked at your post history to see if you’re a bot - looks like you just enjoy making weird porcupine dildo sex comments - all totally unrelated to wherever they’re posted, some offensive, all random - and for years! hahaha wtf?!
Some just want to live unbridled.
Assuming it were true I would also tell people this randomly, it's such an interesting conversation gem.
"What would you like on your hot dog sir?"
"Oh nothing for me but you know, my neighbor puts relish on her genitals, this hot dog would be a good genital-relish delivery system, don't you agree?"
Gotta admire the commitment.
I haven't seen one of these "committed to the bit" accounts in a long time.
I remember a user called something like "I'mAlJean" and literally every comment he made was on Simpsons related posts saying "I wrote this and it sucks", dude didn't even get any karma for it, but he committed like hell to the bit.
Floridaman strikes again.
Who doesn’t relish genitals?
A woman of culture I see
That's when she uses yogurt
Sweet or dill?
Very important question
Where is this person so I don’t cross paths with her?
Whoa! My neighbor does too!! So weird. And to think it happened on Reddit.
From the article, they were stolen produce, worth more than $300k, that is why they were arrested.
>Detectives also learned that the illegal sales may have been happeningfor several months. Mission Produce estimates the value of the stolenproduce to be more than $300,000.
You'd be surprised the lengths farmers go to protect avocados. Some people call it green gold. Fences, cameras, in some countries armed guards.
Not for me, I personally hate avocados. I have no idea why people like it or guacomole.
Because they're delicious!
They are! The avocados are pretty good too.
Everyone can like what they want dude, that's cool. But they are very popular and I love me some chips and guac as long as it's fresh avocado and not that bagged cream avocado spread crap with no seasoning or added veggies.
because they support the cartels
I also support prostitution; wouldn’t want your mom to be out of a job.
Nope. Can’t prosecute any other crimes until you catch all the murderers first!
What’s that? Like 12 avocados?
The avocados also went bad before they arrived to the police station.
The avocados are also cursed.
Guac costs extra, is that ok?
(It was not)
My cousin overdosed on pico.... Powerful stuff.
So, cool joke, beautiful, but this is guacamole
God forbid they turn it in to guacamole 🥑!
Thats not how you make Pico de Gallo...
Their scheme was not as 𝘴𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘤𝘢𝘥𝘰 as they thought.
this was one of the best comments ive ever seen lmfao
The issue isn't the Avocados it's the 300k...
And the stealing...
This story is the pits.
What kind of illegal sale? Like they sold somebody else’s avocados that they didn’t actually own or they didn’t have some random permit?
Yes, they were stolen
So what’s the facepalm?
At this point, the initial news headline.
But the comment suggesting we can't do anything about smaller crimes until we solve all larger ones is a close second.
The follow-up comment, probably, for suggesting that $300,000 isn't somehow important because it was from avocado or other crimes must be solved before police arrest people for theft.
This actually harming an already dying American export of avocados, some farmers are forced to shut down their farms due to Mexico being able to export twice as many avocados as them. **#SAVECALIFORNIASAVOCADOS**
Do they think that the police have a board that lists criminals?
"Wanted: Andy the Arsonist"
"Wanted: Mitch the Murderer"
"Wanted: Gary the Illegal Guac Seller"
Why the facepalm? These assholes should be arrested because they stole $300k worth of avocados from a company.
It was stolen produce totaling over 300k. Using the argument that there's "bigger fish to fry" when you're literally talking about 300k, I mean....
California takes avocados seriously.
Finally something healthy being illegally sold.
tom brady nervous
"KillianTrill" is about as smart as you'd expect someone who's styled themselves to resemble an upside-down penis would be
Same for you OP, if you didn't read the tweet in the picture you linked as "these men stole $300,000" bless your heart
The reason that this is such a large issue, is that there are actual advocado cartels that smuggle them in from the southern border.
Because avocados are hard to grow in most parts of North America, they cost a pretty penny.
The real problem is that these cartels actually steal entire shipments from the farmers, kidnap them, and hold them for ransom so the families have to pay.
People have been killed, and entire cities have been destroyed over this. It is a real issue. Not only is there various sources on it, there is also a netflix documentary.
I live in the avocado capital of the US. Theft of avocados out here is a serious crime. People put multimillion dollar security systems on their avocado groves. An established Grove is ridiculously expensive. You have to remember, on average it takes an avocado tree 5-10 years to grow fruit, and the avocado craze is relatively new.
I mean 300k is a lot of money though.
Cartel expansion plan
Ah, yes. There are murders, so let's just let all other crime proceed until there aren't any more murders
This post is the real facepalm
We need to provide murderers with nicer alternative crimes to commit
How is this facepalm? Because there's rape and murder no other crimes matter?
They basically stole the avocados and sold them on. https://6abc.com/avocado-theft-grand-mission-produce-thieves-ventura-county/2115438/
these dudes look like neapolitan ice cream
Each one looks like the same person except god just slid the skin color slider a bit and called it a day.
Well holy guacamole that escaladed quickly
Clickbait title, grand theft is a felony.
Grand theft Avocado 🥑
The full story is they were working at a business and sold avocados to customers for cash and kept the cash. Honestly though, I low key don’t care. I don’t condone stealing but……
But what? 'I don't condone stealing but I do in this instance for no particular reason'.
Thank you for the backstory, it was just enough to satisfy my curiosity!!
Well hell, since people are being murdered then I guess all other crimes are excusable. That's great news! Honey, fire up the bath tub it's time to cook!
I feel times have changed when illegal avocado dealing is a thing.
I would have bought all the avocados.
They are all just the same guy in different ethnic forms.
a few months ago I read the article, I believe they were illegally imported.
How’d they sell $300k of avocados so fast? I buy em and they feel like concrete but they turn brown the next day. It’s a very tight window of opportunity.
Where can I find the statute that governs avocados so I can figure out what "illegal sale of avocados " means?
L-R they also like three stages of ripeness of an avocado
Obviously none of y’all are Californian, illegal avocado dealing has been a real problem out here.
mafia makes millions from virgin olive oil.
"Hey yo... what you in for???"
"Damn, this boy is HARD!"
How come the middle guy looks like mix of the side guys?
You don’t know if there’s blood on them ‘cados.
Man I remember being in the avocado game, you're riding high got women cars jewelry then one day guacamole and it's over
If there is anything any government cares more than rape and murder its tax evasion.
"Hey man you got some of that green?"
"yeah bro hush hush. It's the Hass strain."
Wait until you hear about Canada's maple syrup cartels
Sometimes the cops get the low-hanging......fruit. Yeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhh. Puts on glasses.
Were those the coke bags masked in avocadoes as the avocado core?
Guy in the middle, ya he's not sorry - second he makes bail, he's opening a stall at a farmer's market for sure.
Veggie Tales from Tha Hood
I mean it's theft...
I mean, yes. Probably.
On the other hand, are these guys ruining farms by having people steal an entire crop in the night or hijacking trucks and selling them was their only charge they could prove? Like Al Capone?
Now you see why the crime rate is up
Someone steals wire from lowes to sell and there is public outrage. Someone steals Avocados and sells them for more money and we make jokes.
How can you illegally sell a avacardo.
Probably not having a business and health dept license to do so.
But are they getting murdered on avacado farms? That’s the relevant detail.
Here comes the war on avocados. Wonder how big the avocado enforcement agency budget will be…
We’re going to imprison them at Guacanamo Bay.
I'm sure a few million a year budget will solve the issue
New meaning to Avocado Toast.
They getting murdered by lord voldemort shouting avocadocadaver
Wait… they’re arrested for SELLING avacado? Did they steal them? Because if they grew them themselves, I don’t see a problem.
Yes they stole over $300k worth of avocados
Sounds like they were working at a produce place and selling them for cash on the side so yes stealing.
Ah, okay that makes sense, that headline is shit.
You can get arrested for selling any food without permit, health dept validation, or whatever if you do enough business. So it's probably that.
Sell enough of grandma's almond butter and it could happen to you. But only if you ignored all the rules.
No smashed Avocado for you!
Is "avocados " a street slang for meth or something? /s
I hear you can get 5 years just for using.
When drugs are legalized they gotta get their money from the people one way or another.
I hear the underground toast market is quite dangerous
That’s real, and you really don’t
(unless your a badass Mexican farmer)
[blood avocados are real](https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.businessinsider.com/us-avocado-consumption-helping-mexican-drug-cartels-border-guns-2020-2%3famp)
One bite of avocado is all it takes to be hooked for life
No shit wtf
Discussions in jail must be funny
2 for a dollar at Krogers. That's 600 thousand avocados for crying out loud Jerry!
Where are you at for them to be 2 for $1???
some real shit gobblers
This avocado gang is right out of central casting ive never seen a racially diverse gang IRL before.

Starting with the left guy, what does their face really say? Go!
