Real life tomacco?
"A local scientist claims to have created a new crop called 'tomacco.' He claims he got the idea from a popular cartoon show. Details at 11."
This is a quote from a Sunday night KPDX news break. Blog forgot to watch. While the station's website offers plenty of links to stories about drive-by blow gun attacks, there isn't a single one for the tomacco story.
It has to be a joke, right? The news break neglected to show a shot of this mystery plant. A local guru glued cigarettes to a tomato plant and conned his way on to the local tv station- that must be it.
Four years from now you'll be wandering through a Safeway produce section and there they'll be: fresh, ripe tomaccos. Then you'll think back to this moment and wish you had invested.
