You say Potato, I say Potatosaurus

Parents still think chips are a vegetable - Telegraph

Azmina Govindji, from the British Dietetic Association, said many people considered potatoes to be a vegetable...More than a third of those asked said that they believed that a baked potato counted as a portion of vegetables. Another five per cent identified chips as a vegetable.

Silly old me, of course potatoes aren't vegetables, they are animals.


Well, I would say that potatoes are an honorary meat - they do, after all, have eyes.

Chips still have vitamin C in them.

In Scotland, black pudding counts as one of the 5 portions of fruit, so it is easy to see how people get confused.
