A COUPLE disagreeing on which tinned tomatoes to buy are both wondering if the real problem lies elsewhere.
Wayne Hayes and Carolyn Ryan have been bickering about whether to choose peeled plum or chopped tomatoes for the past ten minutes, with both now experiencing a creeping doubt that perhaps their differences go beyond groceries.
Hayes said: “Maybe we have slightly different preferences when it comes to tomato texture and subtle variations in acidity, but maybe it’s because we haven’t had sex for three weeks.
“Personally, I think the supermarkets’s own brand of chopped tomatoes is fine – and she used to agrees.
“She used to like those tomatoes three times a week, sometimes five times if she was feeling really in the mood for a good tomatoing. She could not get enough of those tomatoes, which she now suddenly hates.”
Ryan said: “Do you really want to live the rest of your life with one tomato? It’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately.
“When you look around the shelves there are so many different types of tomato, some of which look delicious.
“Anyway that’s all it is, not big deal.”
