Other than donating it to others, what's the most creatively witty thing/s you'd want to do, if you were freely given $10 000 worth of avocados?

Cry with happiness and then make a bathtub full of guacamole to swim in.

I'd turn them into popsicles and ice cream before they went bad. Then I'd get an ice cream truck and do a vehicle wrap on it, branding it the 'The Avocado Ice Cream Truck'. I think it would do well here. I live 2 miles from La Habra Heights, the birthplace of the Hass avocado.

Give them to someone who'd enjoy them.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I work at a school. I would use that opportunity to let many students here learn how to prepare it, play with it, eat it, etc...

All prepared items would be sold to fundraise for the clubs that these kids are involved in. I'll buy their items rather than holding back some avocados for myself, heh.

Fill a swimming pool with guacamole. Make some giant corn chips and then invite all the neighborhood BFGs over for a party. But they have to Bring their Own Beer.

My initial thought was "Scream!... because avocados go bad too quickly to do anything with that many!!! What a waste of good food!"....

But on second thought, I think @Spudulika and @Lostear have good ideas.

By the way... avocados run from $1 to $2 apiece in my area... and when they're just $1, it's usually because they're quite ripe and about to go bad. So you're asking me to dispose of from 5000 to 10000 avocados.

I love science fiction, so how about... I put them in my time-stasis chamber, which preserves food by slowing time down to a crawl, except when I open the door. Then I sell them or give them away as people want them, and/or eat them myself in a demonstration of my soon-to-be-publicized "Avocado A Day" diet.

Or maybe I'd trade half of them for $5000 worth of sweet cherries or persimmons.
