    BoB, go ahead and try to survive off of fruit juice drinks. When you die of malnourishment, this problem will have been definitively solved.

    Flavoured drinks, regardless of how deliciously chunky they may be, only hydrate us, they do not sustain the human body's other functions. I have no doubt that one - in particular, you - could make a soup in such a way that it could be considered a drink, but at that point it would cease being soup, so...

    I think this thread warrants a 1 week ban for Loony BoB.

    Aye.

    Dead Kennedys made a song called "Soup Is Good Food". Notice: Not "Soup Is a Good Drink". "Soup Is Good Food". I think that settles it.



    Lonny BoB has been wrong about a lot of things before, but he has never been more wrong than he is in this thread.

    Bob what the hell, how can you be THIS WRONG? This is as wrong as Shorty except that EVEN SHE IS CORRECT THIS TIME

    Also Bob when you smear yourself in feces and start yelling random insanity about soup being a drink at co-workers, that's not an "argument at work", it's a crazy person.

    ​Soup is a food, but it can be drunk like a beverage

    iit: People take soup way too seriously.

    I see it as food unless it's just the broth, then it becomes a drink.

    What makes a soup a soup!? For me, it's "liquidated food" and since a drink is a consumable liquid, that means that soup is a drink... oh, and I question what you're saying regarding the fruit juice thing. I mean, 100% fruit juice "with bits" is basically the entire inside of the fruit, and acts as both a drink and a food.

    Sorta like soup. ;D

    I have yet to have anyone tell me a reasonable, logical reason that soup is not a drink.

    A drink quenches ones thirst. I do not reach for a cool frosty mug of soup after a hard day of working in the sun.

    It sounds to me that your logic is lying in the fact that both soup and drinks contain water. Bread and beer both have yeast. Bread must be a drink too. *nod*

    No, my logic is lying in the fact that they are both consumable liquids. You drink soup, you don't drink bread. xD Although if you liquidate it...

    EDIT: And not all drinks quench thirst. Coffee and alcohol dehydrate, not hydrate. And it could be argued that some soups can quench thirst depending on how thin they are. The soup I had yesterday definitely quenched mine! It was really thin. Like, really, really thin. Strong, still, though. They obviously used a lot of beef stock.

    No one drinks soup. It's eaten with a spoon. Because it's a food. Furthermore nearly all soups have solid additives that one would not find in any self-respecting drink, because soup is not a drink.

    BoB is the wrongest wrong in the history of wrongs.
