Mel Gibson I Don't Hate Fruits ... I Juggle Them!

Mel Gibson
proved he's more than just an angry dude who yells at people a lot -- he's also an avid FRUIT JUGGLER, and TMZ has the fruity footage.

The impromptu circus act went down outside of a bar in Austin, Texas last Thursday ... Mel showed off (for a pretty lady of course) his awesome juggling skills ... and we gotta admit, he's not too shabby.  

Mel lays down two separate acts for the ladies, first he juggles 3 oranges ... then he gets serious and switches it up by only using one hand (but has fewer oranges).

Amazing. (Ya know, if you find juggling fruit impressive).
