Ya Tamatam is an affectionate way of saying 'you tomato'....so translated it's like 'okay, you tomato' :) (makes more sense in Arabic, trust me :lol:)

Of course, you could also look at a tomatoes qualities - sort of round, red & squashy - and give you the pip (if you have denture problems). ;) :lol: :lol: [/face]
