When Frankenfood-based Sanmato arrived in Vegenashville in his GMO cucumber car, little did he realize that the sunny tomato in the sky presiding over all things vegetarian in Music City USA would be fiddling a different tune. With help from the Masked Peach Bandit, a full-frontal assault on the genetic modifications to the vegetable-based skyline and riverfront of the vegetopolis would ensue with immediacy and aplomb. What will become of the ear of corn zapped by Sanmato’s double-helix gun? In what way will the fruits, vegetables, and herbaceous plants of the city along the Cumberland river come to the aid of the Masked Peach Bandit? Tune in next week, same plant time, same plant channel...
