      Me neither… I thought tomatoes were juicy.

        Careful, tomatos are also of the deadly nightshade family.

          Not many nightshades are deadly to humans. It is perhaps the most used/eaten plant family. Even the plant specifically know as Deadly Nightshade is used in medicine as a relaxer for eye surgery, due to the fact it numbs your body and greatly dilates your pupil.

      tomatoes can never be sexy or even slutty, they are the scourge of humanity that can be nothing else but a nightmare invoking enemy and have to be exterminated.

        As someone who has seen all four of the “Killer Tomatos” movies, I wholeheartedly concur.

    Guy, I don’t think that’s what they’re angry about…the renewed definition of the tomato as a fruit is obviously bringing up the bad feelings from the renewed definition of Pluto as “not a planet”.

      “renewed definition of the tomato as a fruit”? the tomato has been called a fruit my whole life. was there some controversy in the news i missed?

    • Juleamun

      Tomatoes carry the seeds of the tomato plant and are therefore the fruit. Vegetable is the stem and leaves of a plant.

        I know that there is a botanical definition of ‘fruit’, but there is non of the term ‘vegetable’.

        So as long as you don’t say straw-accessory-nut-fruit instead of strawberry, f**k off.

        • ??

          on the lines of strange factoids, cucumbers and pumpkins are both technically melons.

            Well… if you wanted to say that all three are species of the family Cucurbitaceae and form berries as fruits, than – no. Please, don’t say that. Not like that. It could be misleading.
            It is much more fun btw to say, that cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and Broccoli are all cabbages! Because they really are the same species!

            Now, that you all know me as a botanical pedant, I’m going to eat a cookie.

          Vegetable = root, stem, or leaf

          The whole thing with tomatos being mistakenly classified as vegetables was the result of an act of congress – further proof that government can’t get anything right.

    well, tomatoes appear to be berries…

      Berries are a subset of fruit.

      More importantly, it’s of comparable size to other objects in it’s orbit.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad

    It’s the same as stupid (please note: this is not aimed at the non-stupid) americans who insist on calling the ‘kiwifruit’ a ‘kiwi’ (a ‘kiwi’ is a flightless bird about the size of chubby chicken that lays an egg that would make an ostrich cringe)

    It’s actually a variation on the ‘Chinese gooseberry’, but kiwi-ized (like what we did with the Japanese sandal and Mount Everest :D)

    • dAVe

      Lol, what? That’s weird. In my country it’s the opposite, we call the “kiwi fruit” a “kivi” or “kiwi” and we usually put bird in the end when we referring to the animal (and in that case that’s always written with a “v”)

      • Guesticus
        Guesticus

        It’s kiwifruit, one word, like strawberry or passionfruit (kiwiberry is different kind of fruit)

    I agree with guy about not doing SLUTY things (panel two, guy’s balloon, line 4 of 6). I’d rather see her do SLUTTY things :)

    There’s a typo in panel 2. It’s slutty, not sluty :)

  18. Marscaleb

    Ohhhh, I thought she was a strawberry at first.
