Reagan said that catsup should be counted as a vegetable. Even I, a Reagan supporter, laughed until it became clear a number of years later that the lycopene in catsup (and tomato paste) inhibits the development and progress of prostatic cancer.
I'll have my pizza with onions, mushrooms, and olives.
Certainly looking at the tomato content of one slice of pizza it may look a little silly, but how much of the stuff do they eat in one year? Multipled by an entire school, the lunch room may produce *tons* of tomato products in one year. It's a good idea to get credit for that.
+1 to Congress.
Animal, vegetable, of mineral? For those of us of a certain age that question is very familiar. It was the most asked question on the popular radio and TV game show "Twenty Questions".
Pray tell what else would you call ketchup or tomato paste?
