After we posted about the Brooklyn Tomato Battle happening this coming Saturday at Floyd Bennett Field, there was some concern over wasting perfectly good tomatoes on a silly food fight. Also, fifty dollars. Also, hipsters. But organizers promise you will not be throwing any sort of edible tomato at their event:

"All of the tomatoes used during the exhibition will have been previously marked for disposal, making the Tomato Battle an efficient and entertaining use of nonedible waste."

That said... they do kind of look perfectly red, ripe, juicy, and totally edible from this angle:

At least they'll be cleaning up their mess? Unlike the Pillow Fight people.
