Did you know that the Aztecs also called the avocado tree a “testicle tree” because they thought the fruit hanging in pairs on the tree looked like male testicles.

Here's how ignorant I am about avocados. I didn't even know they grow on trees!
I actually Googled "avocado tree," to see if BigMike's post was just a joke. I'm way too gullible.
