So *that’s* why he doesn’t have scurvy

“Mum,” Fainjin said seriously, contemplating his dinner of pasta and cheese – again.  “Did you know… garlic bread is a fruit.”

That settles that, then.

    I wonder, how does he explain vegetables? (zucchini squash is a vegetable, right?) 🙂

  2. L Says:

    if not zucchini, then… are pumpkin a fruit? capsicum? eggplant? My world-view is shaken…

    Is that a True Fact, or a repeated one? (Hm. I think I must have forgotten loads. I do remember that tomatoes are a fruit, though…)
