Born to a sharecropper's wench and doomed to a life of shoe repair came the
infamous Gene Tomatoseed.
About 1775, after fighting with his little brother over a late supper of poached
grass and boiled dirt, he left home to preach the word and spread the wonders
of the tomato.
He always carried a burlap sack full of the wondrous seeds with a gallon of
MiracleGrow and elephant poop.
He wore out many pairs of feet in his travels so he was seen in many graveyards
looking for replacements.
Making a deal with the Devil in 1860, he still lives today amongst us growing his
"love apples" and giving Duke's Mayonnaise free plugs.
