    You guys are seriously so fucked. I feel bad for Americans. It won't be long before lobbyists are "convincing" your corrupt congress on the health benefits of meth...

    Since white flour builds up and congests the digestive track over time, inhibiting the absorption of many nutrients, pizza is sort of neutral if you're going to count it's merits of health. As a rule, though, you shouldn't even consider this point to begin with.

    There really is no help for someone who can be convinced that pizza is a healthy food to start with. Hey, I love pizza, but I'm not going to rationalize it with crap like, "teh tomato sauce is a serving of vegetables!!!11!1!"

    This is ridiculous. I understand the superficial reasoning of wanting to cut back on spending, but it's very clear that this wasn't motivated by an urge to pull back on the Fed's spending habits.

    At least they recognize that fact that kids definitely don't eat fruit/vegetables that come with meals at schools.

    I swear America has become a parody of itself. I used to laugh when people make jokes about stereotypical America, but now I don't because the real thing is just so hilarious but equally frightening that there's no competition. This is why The Onion catches me off guard; half the shit it jokes about could actually happen in America.

    The rest of the world laughs nervously. :lol:

    I've been telling people for a while now that since chocolate is made from a cocoa been it's a legume, 'justifying' eating chocolate instead of breakfast.

    Also, cocaine is made from a plant, so it's a vegetable, and counts towards your 5 a day.

    FOR FUCK'S SAKE, TOMATOES ARE A FRUIT, NOT A VEGETABLE.

    Can't believe this is the thing that bothers me most about this article, it beggars belief how stupid some of the fuckwits in charge of schools that country are. If any of you have seen Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution on TV, where he's trying to improve food in LA schools against a tide of resistance from penny-pinching, idiotic politicians, that is exactly what I'm reminded of here.

    My sister, who holds a Master's degree, thought I was talking bullshit when I said that squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, corn (Maize to the rest of the world. Is there a such thing as popmaize?), and pumpkins are fruit. Politicians have so severely distorted our perception of food. Whatever, when the Chinese invade and line up all the fat people in front of a ditch, I'll be living in the woods and practicing crop rotation until all the assholes in the world go extinct. :lol:

    You know what, in all the madness of this thing I completely forgot that. :lol: The principle alone of considering pizza a vegetable seemed mad to me, forgot that the main ingredient isn't even a vegetable. :

    The only vegetables are those dumb asses in Congress.
    There is NO brain activity there!

    Can we get them classified as vegetables?
