You say tomato, I say … Larry Bird?
Before you chop up this tomato to slap it on a BLT, take a long, hard look: A lot of people figured this fruit (or vegetable, I guess), to have a stunning, disturbing resemblance to Hall of Fame basketball star Larry Bird.

And, by God, they're right.
Seeing the Larry Bird trend on Twitter made me paranoid that he had died or something but it's just people talking about how he looks like a tomato pic.twitter.com/HwBbprJC4B— Jordy 🎮 The Last of Us Part II (@JordyD127) August 2, 2020
Poor Larry. He deserves better than this. That's one of the greatest NBA players of all time! Tomatoes aren't even that versatile or tasty. Though, I bet you could slap a Celtics jersey on that bad boy and he'd go off for 25/10/9.
It's not quite Jesus Toast or that one green pepper that looked like Rocky Balboa, but the tomato is entertaining nonetheless. Also, who puts a hat on a tomato?
In any case, lots of Twitter folk took to the tweet machine to voice their opinions on the second coming of Larry Legend (or Larry Veg-end, if you prefer).

Believe it or not but this Larry Bird tomato is much better looking than the Kevin Mc Kale pic.twitter.com/LyyKonjZE0— The Sklar Brothers (@SklarBrothers) August 2, 2020
If someone finds an eggplant with a full set of shiny teeth like Magic Johnson, this could get a lot more interesting.
