Wisdom is knowing to not put a Tomato in a fruit salad. Charisma is being able to sell a Tomato based fruit salad. Constitution is being able to not throw up after eating a Tomato based fruit salad.

  • Nyk Carnsew
    Nyk Carnsew 1 year ago Anistuffs - The Indian Let's Player a fruit salad is a meal made of assorted fruits. It wouldn't include tomatoes because tomatoes don't compliment most other fruits in terms of taste.
  • Bb NL
    Bb NL 1 year ago Isn’t a tomato based fruit salad salsa? I mean it can be composed of peppers and tomatoes( both fruit) ergo salsa= fruit salad
