Mexicans Mock Avocado Shortage with Hilarious Memes

OK, you know the drill. No matter how tragic a situation will get, Mexicans will always see the funny side of the whole thing.

And the avocado shortage of late is no exception.

In case you have no idea what’s going on, prices of avocado have risen by more than 90 percent since the end of 2015, mostly because Mexico’s biggest ever harvest is coming to an end and a new one is not yet ready. On top of that, the shortage has coincided with a sharp fall in U.S. production caused by heatwave in California, hitting the the Fourth of July weekend, the second largest avocado consumption event of the year in the U.S. after the Super Bowl.

You might think an avocado shortage in a place like Mexico would be no laughing matter, but then again, you do not know Mexicans.

Here are some of my faves, explained for the monolingual crowd.
