At first, we came up with "Guaca-mole-e", which would have Avocado's number of particles. But that just seemed so obvious that we concluded it must have been done many times before. Checking the internet this morning as I'm writing this post, I see that we were correct.
We settled on this:

Regrettably, Google did not post up a Mole Day GoogleDoodle this morning. They managed to hit their recent Schrodinger-themed Doodle out of the park, but dropped the mole ball where Avogadro is concerned.
