Smashed avocado is both loved and derided as the food of choice of the Millennial generation.

Now a witty vandal has paid tribute to the quintessential breakfast meal in central Victoria, amending a road sign on the Sunraysia Highway 13 kilometres out of Avoca.

A photo of the sign shows that instead of Avoca, it now reads ‘Smashed Avocado, $13’.

Columnist Bernard Salt – who inflamed intergenerational debate in 2016 with a now-infamous quip about how members of the younger generation were to afford their own houses if they kept buying the cafe menu staple – tweeted the photo on Sunday night.

People were quick to respond with their own observations about the accuracy of the graffiti, pointing out that $13 for smashed avocado was a bit of a steal.
