So According to Congress, Pizza is a Vegetable

Last week, Congress blocked a USDA proposal that would've required more tomato sauce on pizzas for it to be classified as a vegetable when served in school cafeterias. That's right, they're really trying to say that pizza is a vegetable because it has tomato sauce on it. Never mind the fact that tomatoes belong to the fruit family, and that the pizza they serve kids is barely pizza.

So much for stopping childhood obesity.
