Happy National Guacamole Day ?

I knew we were obsessed with the green stuff but I had no idea the obsession had become so dangerous. A new survey asked people what they’d rather do: Give up guacamole for a full year OR swim in shark-infested waters for one minute.

I’ll give you a moment to reflect on the question. 1. Give up an expensive condiment OR swim with an alpha predator who has survived on this planet for over 400 million years. (Humans have only been around for about 200,000 years btw.)

So, now that you’ve had some time to think about it… are you one of the one in five who would rather swim with sharks for a a full minute to eat guac? Here’s how the numbers shake out: 49% of people said they’d give up guacamole for a year… 21% said they’d swim with sharks… and the remaining 30% said they weren’t sure. 31% of people also said they’d swim with sharks to get FREE guacamole for a year. 39% would listen to nails on a chalkboard for 30 minutes… 36% would give up HALF their vacation time (this people really need help) and 38% would shave their head for a year’s worth of guac.
