Stephen Colbert’s Horrifying Taco Bell Theory Causes Entire Audience To Groan

“I knew that would be the reaction and I didn’t care,” the "Late Show" host said.

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert spotted what could be the nation’s next big crisis: an avocado shortage.

Avocado imports from Mexico were suspended when a U.S. plant safety inspector received a death threat amid an escalating drug cartel battle there.

“Go buy a bunch of avocados,” Colbert urged. “Forget you have them, then throw them all away two days later because they turn into little compost grenades.”

Colbert did notice that one company wasn’t worried. According to The Daily Mail, Taco Bell said it won’t be impacted by any shortage “due to how it gets its guacamole.” That led to a long pause and a look of skepticism from Colbert.

“Yes, Taco Bell doesn’t get it from Mexico,” he said. “They get it from the planet Ahch-To.”

“I knew that would be the reaction and I didn’t care,” Colbert said.
