Meme: I am a tomato

Background: I am a tomato (sauce)

Usage: "Toshinou Kyouko is a tomato"

enter image description here

Additionally, from September 27, 2015, "Tomato" became the official catchphrase of this year's Holiday Gift Exchange:

  1. In celebration of our site graduation and our new fellow moderator (mostly the latter), "Tomato" will be a featured catchphrase for this Exchange. Use it however you prefer, as a password, greeting and farewell (like "ciao"), etc.

Come one, come all to the SECOND Annual Anime.SE Holiday Gift Exchange!

Confirmation that tomatoes were the best was given by the highly intelligent AI life system in chat.

As tomatoes do not make many noises, sound effects to do with this meme generally take the form of squishing noises. squish squish
