good for throwing if not eating

You might mention that people also throw tomatoes at persons who displease them (I guess that is more a thing of past though, when most people had a backyard patch with some rotting tomatoes). I have some nice ones festering in my garden that I would be happy to give away to anyone who has a worthy target.

Evelyn, I could use a bag of the rotten tomatoes
