Where's the logic - Pizza is a Vegetable?
The U.S Congress has passed the bill: "The joint House-Senate agriculture spending bill" declaring Pizza as a vegetable. The reason pizza can get away with being classified as a vegetable is the fact that the two tablespoons of tomato paste is enough for Congress to make the distinction .
The frozen food industry (American Frozen Food Institute/AFFI) certainly got good value for there money spent on lobbying the politicians.

They had tried this before. A bit different of a circumstance. Ketchup as a vegetable.
The Republican controlled congress must be reminiscing a little too much about Reagan. I guess you can legislate nutrition, but you can't legislate intelligence.

You may not be able to legislate intelligence but you can legislate its use it seems. Of course this is the same government that allows Vitamin C to be classed as a drug (if I understand it right) so what can you expect? Actually with the potential debate this topic could generate you might want to see if this can be moved to politics and religion.
