    A drink? Are you insane, BoB?

    If it primarily sustains you in the way that food sustains you, it's a food. If it primarily sustains you in the way that water sustains you, it's a drink.

    Soup is a food.

    It's listed in the food section of every restaurant menu, not the drink section. You crazy Kiwi.

    But why, Phil? WHY??? If you get some soup in a cup and you drink it and it has no food chunks, why would you not call it a drink?

    Quin: So... back to fruit juices...

    Chris: Yeah, a lot of people actually said 'both' at work, too, but I find it much more fun to polarise things because of the debate it can bring about. I get strangely amused at how incredibly easy it is to argue that soup should be classed as a drink. The two people who sit opposite me get very wound up at me drinking soup with my lunch.

    Also, to anyone who mentions 'liquid food' as proof that soup is not a drink...

    Any liquid, probably including liquid food!

    All of this made me want to have a nice bowl of soup for lunch.

    Because I was hungry.

    Because it is food.

    I know, right?

    It almost makes me feel sorry for him. But then I remember he considers soup a drink, and that all disappears.

    Food. I have made enough soups to know.

    EDIT: Tomato juice and tomato soup are two very different things.

    i believe that soup is a food because that's how i was raised

    it's just my belief system i don't understand why we're having an argument over what people BELIEVE

    and who is RIGHT and who is WRONG

    BOB IS A RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALIST TRYING TO CONVINCE EVERYONE ELSE TO GO OVER TO HIS WAY OF THINKING

    move this thread about religion to eyes on each other please
