Life Imitates Art Imitates Life

Behold the mighty tomacco. A man grafted a tomato plant to a tobacco root and got a hybrid that produces (likely lethal) nicotine-enriched tomatoes.

I'm sorry - tomaccos.

Inspired by a Simpson's episode, which was likely, in turn, inspired by a study in the 50's. (Thanks, Rui)

Ugh. I had a dream this morning that I was in possession of one of these tomatoes, and I bit into it. It was disgusting.
