    Remember years ago when the USDA tried to tell us that one of the kinds of vegetables our kids would be fed at school was...ketchup?

    Well...there they go again.


    I dunno, you guys...the USDA may be splitting technical hairs here, but when I think of a veggie tray or steamed vegetables, I'm not usually equating that with french fries, batter-coated or otherwise.

    already have this one but I personally think the other should go because the title does not match the content. Just my humble opinion.

    The last 2 paragraphs of the article/quote above says it all.

    If your mother reminds you to eat your vegetables, she doesn't take you to McD's to order you a supersize fries.

    the title of the other thread was refering to the time back when Reagan's administration wanted to call ketchup a vegetable so they would not have to spend any more on school lunches.

    Oops, sorry. But yeah, I wouldn't have guessed there was already a thread on this from the other title.

    Wait, so does this mean that fries with ketchup is now two vegetables? That many vegies doesn't sound like a very balanced diet to me! I'd rather eat a nice healthful sandwich -- a slice of bologna between two beers.
