Green, tobacco hornworm savaging my tomatoes

Discovered several of these today smacking their fat little lips as they took giant bites of my tomatoes. Then they turned and looked at me and I RAN.

Bright side: hearing stories about how friends remember their parents dealing with hornworms [paying the kids a quarter per, throwing them them against the fence, shooting them with a BB gun] but I am still too scared to ever return to my yard.
