Simpsons fan Rob Baur has actually grown a tomacco plant by grafting a tomato plant onto a tobacco plant. The result: a tomato that's full of nicotine.
While the Simpsons episode ended with the destruction of the sole surviving tomacco plant in a fiery helicopter crash, perhaps this miscegnation story will have a happy ending. In the future, millions of smokers will fidget nervously as they await their tomacco pasta, tomacco pizzas, and tomacco bruschetta!
