Pizza now a.......vegetable???
On Tuesday, Congress decided that pizza is a vegetable. I have to imagine that this news instilled confusion in many Americans, as many Americans are (a) familiar with pizza, (b) familiar with vegetables and © sane.

But, to provide specifics that will in no way dispel your lingering thoughts that we are governed by morons but at least allow you some anthropological insight into how a group of morons who have been given permission to sit in a fancy room in Washington, D.C., and grunt at each other actually think, here is their thinking: Pizza is a vegetable for the purposes of determining what goes into public school lunches by virtue of the fact that pizza traditionally includes a schmear of tomato paste. (Botanically speaking, tomatoes are actually fruit, but we're going to have to just let that slide.)

Well to be honest us limeys have our fair share of sillyness......this is what we come up with a couple of days ago.

Quote:Britain's 'cheapest' lunchtime meal was unveiled by scientists on Wednesday - the toast sandwich.

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) is reviving the mid-Victorian dish, which, unsurprisingly, consists of two slices of bread around a slice of toast.

The society is so confident in the repast, it will offer £200 to anyone who can create a cheaper alternative.

RE: Pizza now a.......vegetable???
I'm just talking to my friend, who graduated in agronomy and he tells me that the tomato is not a fruit, but a vegetable. It falls into family of solanaceae and the Latin name is LYCOPERSICON ESCULENTUM. So either the Wikipedia or the USA have made a mistake, but do not trust either of them.

TOMATO IS A VEGETABLE!!

P.S.
On this page you can see all the info on tomato plant. There is no mention of "fruit" or "vegetable", because that is not the official sorting of the plants. Fruit and vegetable are mostly everyday terms for some plants and the main difference is that the fruit has a thick, hard, tree-like stem, as the vegetable has soft, bush-like appearance and stem.

So by all means, tomato is just like paprika and potato, commonly known as vegetable.

Pizza on the other hand is not, it has no stem at all, not a small soft one, or a hard tree-like one...
