Disturbing Implications in the song “Pizza Angel”
So I was listening “Pizza Angel” (AKA the best Silly Song) and as I was listening one lyric caught me off guard.
“Tomato sauce and cheese so gooey”
Tomatoes, the key ingredient in tomato sauce, are known to be sentient within the VeggieTales universe, with the best example being Bob the Tomato, who is the best friend of Larry the Cucumber, the protagonist and singer of the song.

And what does it mean that there is a pizzaria in the VeggieTales universe that uses tomatoes as one of the key ingredients in their food? Where do they get the tomatoes? Are the tomatoes forced there or is it voluntary? Do other tomatoes eat pizza knowing well that what they’re doing is cannibalism?
The VeggieTales universe contains numerous unsolved moral dilemmas.
