I hope I’m not the only one who remembers the world’s largest taco and the unprecedented efforts to save marine life. My country is at it again, this time breaking all world records possible by making a 3-ton guacamole.
Sí, señor, that’s almost 7,000 pounds of pure green deliciousness.
According to my very reliable sources (i.e. The Internet), it took about 1,000 Mexicans to mash up 25,000 avocados and mix them up with onion, tomato and the like.
But before you start judging us, keep in mind that the feat was not only to satisfy our demanding bellies, no señor.
The mass mash-up was part entertainment and part politicking, as growers and Mexico make the point that they – and the guacamole loving Americans – have benefited from the North American Free Trade Agreement that is now under threat from U.S. President Donald Trump.
So there. Mexico 1 — El Trompo 0.
