Just As Long As Folks Don't Throw 'Em

So, Tennessee now has an official fruit. Oh joy. The tomato. I just bet the folks in Ripley are real happy today.

At least they definitively settled something:
Answering one question, [Rep. Dennis Roach (R-Rutledge)] noted that the tomato is a fruit, not a vegetable, because it grows on a vine.
Maybe when Sheryl Crow comes to visit Memphis as part of the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival we can show her anti-war ass a real Tennessee welcome by sending a whole lot of Tennessee's official fruit her way while she's performing on stage?

I suspect that's not what legislators had in mind.
