You say tomato, I say … Larry Bird?
Before chopping this tomato to hit it on a BLT, take a good look at it: Many people thought this fruit (or vegetable, I think) has a stunning, disturbing resemblance to Hall of Fame basketball star Larry Bird.

And by God, they are right.

Seeing the Larry Bird trend on Twitter made me paranoid that he passed away or something, but it’s just people talking about how it looks like a tomato pic.twitter.com/HwBbprJC4B

Poor Larry. He deserves better than this. That’s one of the best NBA players of all time! Tomatoes are not that versatile or delicious. But I bet you could hit a Celtics jersey on that bad boy and go 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. And who puts a hat on a tomato?
In any case, many Twitter people went to the tweet machine to share their thoughts on the second coming of Larry Legend (or Larry Veg end, if you prefer).
Trending Larry Bird because someone found a tomato that looks like him is a throwback to a simpler time on Twitter https://t.co/TUoCMFHPvZ

If someone finds an eggplant with a full set of shiny teeth like Magic Johnson, it can get a lot more interesting.
