tommacco is real

Scientist hits a Homer with 'tomacco' creation

Scott Stinson
National Post
Thursday, November 13, 2003

Quote:
An Oregon scientist inspired by Homer Simpson has successfully created "tomacco" -- a tomato plant that contains nicotine.
But Rob Baur is now worried that he has produced "the ultimate Frankenfood" and that it could, in fact, be deadly to eat.

Mr. Baur says the idea to cross-breed tomatoes and tobacco came from an episode of The Simpsons that first aired in 1999. After inadvertently challenging a southern colonel to a pistols-at-dawn duel, the Simpson patriarch decides to flee to his childhood farm with his family to live off the land.

He accidentally mixes tomato and tobacco seeds and after applying borrowed plutonium to his fields -- "a little boost for Mother Nature" -- grows the tomacco hybrid. It tastes awful, but is highly addictive, as several farm animals and his son, Bart, soon discover.
as a non smoker, this is truly the most stomach turning idea.

I like the Simpsons!

But can't they be inspired to create something else from pop culture? Like time travel? I want time travel, dammit, not tomacco!
