Not Christmas balls, not cheese balls, not basketballs or mothballs. I'm talking about those balls. Testicle balls. And avocados. I'm under the impression that when an avocado grows on a tree, it grows as a pair with one hanging slightly above or slightly below it's brother. I really, really believe that I learned that the word avocado means balls or testicles.

I believe I learned all this sometime between the years 2002 and 2005. I've narrowed it down to that time frame for two reasons: a) I know I was living in California at the time; and 2) I know I was living in California at the time, because I liked watching the PBS program called California's Gold.

I'm pretty sure it was Huell Howser who taught me the true meaning of avocado.

Why am I blogging about this? Well, because I've tried including this random piece of trivia in casual conversations...and NO ONE YET has believed me. Well, a quick google search confirmed that avocado is from "the language of the Aztecs," and it translates to testicle. So there. Also, guacamole translates to avocado sauce. Um...gross.


  1. Hahahahaha, makes total sense. Now my husband and I will have that to giggle over when we make something with avocados.

  2. Bwahahahha so random, and so good! thanks for the laugh :)

  3. Have you seen the photo of fruits and veggies that tells what body part they resemble? It's suggesting that what it looks like is what it's good for, ie. carrots have rings inside when you slice them like an eye. So according to your theory, the boys should be eating their avocados for good testicle health. :o)
