A Tomato Hit Gulf Coast?!

When our babies were little, instead of nightlight, I would often leave the television on so that a) I could see to ensure that in my sleep-deprived stupor I was placing the diaper on the right end of the child and b) to have a little something to stare at to assist me in falling back asleep.

So, one night, as I was watching the weather channel on MUTE this is what I read on the closed caption feed:

"Tomato hits Gulf Coast"

Ummm...are you sure it wasn't a TORNADO???

Even our beloved state was subjected to the error of the stenographer's sloppy ways.  Ever heard of McAllen, TAXES?

I'm guessing the folks there had to pay higher Texas after they assessed all the damage from that tomato!  ;|
