This has a deeper meaning than you see. It tells you to never judge a book by its cover. It tells you that what matters is that which is on the inside. This is not a tomato, this is philosophy. OK BUT THIS SHIT HAPPENS IN PAKISTAN TOO LOL.

This has to be Lagos yeah? And probably some of these high profile supermarkets.
I understand dipping them in wax to make them glow and look fresh (somehow) but painting tomatoes?
Tomato wey no ripe all through harvesting, transportation and distribution, hian!!
