Drunken Polish prank, something more sinister, or just tomatoes that fell off a truck? Kurt Strahm sent us over some images of tomato torture in Greenpoint's McCarren Park. He spotted a strange scene on Wednesday morning with tomatoes lying in the street, being crushed by the passing traffic. That's not so strange, but seeing tomatoes impaled on the fence surrounding the park...very strange.

Maybe it's the work of a lycopene-hating cult or someone with an extreme tomato aversion. Or maybe it was a tribute to Bunol, Spain's Tomatina. By Thursday morning, the mess was all gone. We feel sorry for the park employee that probably had to clean up the mess.
