The truck's driver lost control and hit the center divide, dumping tomatoes across eastbound lanes. Four cars trying to drive through the sauce crashed into each other.

    Those cars should have had their tomato chains on.

    I've also been seeing scenes line this first-hand lately...  in Ohio.  Sometimes, I want to stop and pick a few up before they get broadly massacred.  (And one of these days, I will.)

    (The tomato is the state fruit of Ohio, even though we're not always so good at growing them here and according to the USDA, a tomato is a vegetable.)

      Back when the SF Bay area actually processed tomatoes, you could find little piles of tomatoes that fell overboard when an overloaded truck careened around a tight curve.   When biking on the country roads during harvest season I was tempted to find a fresh pile and take the good ones home to make a pot of sauce.

      In what form will the third and fourth horsemen will appear?  Next a truck loaded with basil will collide with another loaded with garlic to create the Pestoclypse.  Followed by a delivery van loaded with pecorino cheese running over some dude on a bike carrying a few kilos of peppercorns to complete the Cacio e Pepeclypse.

    It is apt that the US's La Tomatina happens on an interstate highway rather than a quaint rural village.

    Now we just need a truckful of lasagna to complete the meal. Teamsters, don't fail us now.
