>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY.

NATION, NATION, I DON'TTRUST VEGETABLES.

YOU ALWAYS SEE THEM GROWINGBUT YOU NEVER SEE THEM EAT.

WHAT'S UP.

SO WHEN I CARVE PUMPKINSIT'S NOT FOR HALLOWEEN, IT'S

A WARNING.

THIS IS WHAT I DO TO YOU.

[BLEEP] THING I'VE EVERHEARD.

>> IT'S A PLANT WHICHPRODUCES BOTH TOMATOES AND

POTATO.

>> ABOVE THE GROUND YOU CANHARVEST UP TO 500 CHEREE

SIZED TOMATOES BUT THAT'SNOT ALL.

BELOW THE GROUND YOU CANHARVEST YOUR OWN CROP OF

DELICIOUS WHITE POTATOES.

>> Stephen: THAT'S UNNATURAL.

THE ONLY TIME TOMATOES ANDPOTATO SHOULD MEET IS AT THE

BOTTOM OF A STYROFOAM CLAMSHELL.

BESIDES IT'S DISGUSTING.

WITHOUT WOULD WANT A POTATOTHAT COMES OUT OF THE GROUND,

IT'S FILTHY.

AND VEGETABLES SHOULD NOT BEMATING WITH OTHER SPECIES.

THIS IS MIS-VEG NATION, IT'SADAM AND EVE, NOT ADAM AND

ENDIVE.

AND JUST LISTEN, LISTEN HOWTHESE MAD BOT ANNISES

>> THE INVENTOR PLANT ISBEING CREATED USING A

GRAFTING PROCESS, BY TAPINGTHE ENDS OF TWO PLANTSING

TO.

IT WORKED IN THIS CASEBECAUSE TOMATOES ARE MEMBERS

OF THE POTATO FAMILY, SOTHEY ARE NATURALLY

COMPATIBLE.

>> TOMATO AND POTATO PLANTSTAPED END-TO-END.

THROW A TURN I IN THERE ANDYOU CAN STITCH TOGETHER THE

VEGETABLE CENTIPEDE.

AND THE NAME, WAIT A SECOND,TOM-TATO, WHERE DID THEY GET

THAT NAME, IT'S HALF POTATOAND HALF TOMATO, IT SHOULD

BE CALLED THE POTE-AT THATTIMEO.

WHATEVER, YOU SAY POTATO ASAY TOE MATHO.
