Who thinks this stuff up? A slew of sportos and local celebrities turned out last night for the inaugural “Rotten Tomato Karaoke.’’ Hosted by the Dropkick Murphys in a tent near the Barking Crab, the fund-raiser for the Claddagh Fund gave people a chance to toss tomatoes at singing celebs. (The Claddagh Fund, created by Dropkick Ken Casey, raises money for underfunded nonprofits that serve needy families.) Among those on the guest list last night were Stanley Cup champ Shawn Thornton, Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, NESN’s Heidi Watney, funnyman Lenny Clarke, chef Jamie Bissonnette, boxer Micky Ward, and Miss Massachusetts Alida D’Angona, among many others.
