    Because you measure liquids by volume not by mass and we usually store them in 16-20 litre buckets? I do not think anyone is arguing soup is a liquid. But being a liquid, or primarily a liquid, does not make it a drink. Unless you consider solutions of HCl and Bleach drinks but then you're insane or having a death wish.

    I think BoB is just trying to troll the French, or at least French cuisine. Trying to return the the times of the Hundred Years' War. I know what you are up to!

    I didn't know you were French.

    HCl and bleach are not designed for human consumption and therefore are not a drink. Mentioned this somewhere before - it's like saying a kitchen sponge is food because it's solid and can be consumed. That doesn't mean it should be consumed in any way whatsoever, and therefore is not food whatsoever.

    EDIT: I don't get the purpose behind you editing the poll, MILF. Everyone who clicks through to see who voted can see you're messing with it. Fixed again. >=]

    Quarter, actually. Grandmother was Quebecois. But I was more going for the French as in French cuisine which underlines much of our understanding of food.

    One could argue that HCl is design for human consumption insofar as it is found in the stomach and is used in our consumption of food. But then then the counterargument would be equally one of semantics. More to the point, I used exaggerated examples to point out the fact that we use litres to measure liquids yet being a liquid is not a sufficient condition for something to be a drink, only a necessary one.

    Moreover, depending on your definition of "designed for human consumption", you could argue that the milk of other mammals are not designed for human consumption, yet we still consume them. Therein there is an argument to say that milk, specifically cow's milk, is not a drink. Also, it points to the interesting paradox that as a species we are more comfortable with consuming the milk of another animal than our own. Given the issue around breastfeeding in public as well as the idea of human milk products being marketable.

I think.

    Sauces are probably like soups, they are liquid food and could be described as a drink if you liked to drink things that are completely and utterly gross when consumed on their own. Sadly, I know of a couple of people that would probably drink sauces... Condiments should remain condiments.
    Daniel, you are treading dangerously close to an Iceglow-level of pulling bulltrout out of your ass.

    I've met them both and they are both tiny little men of about five foot seven. They also both have ridiculous accents that I had trouble believing were real. What if...?

    I never said that you couldn't live off of soup. I said you could not live off of supplements alone. Two completely different things.

    There are cultures where people pick up their bowl and drink their soup from it. SoupTale: ASIAN SOUP ETIQUETTE

    I don't speak Cantonese, but the internets say "drinking soup" is a thing people say in Cantonese, rather than "eating soup". Drink instead of eat soup? - Grammar, Sentence Structures and Patterns - Chinese-forums.com

    EDIT: Also see this image from the front page of Lipton's CUP-A-SOUP website that shows a girl drinking soup out of a bowl. http://www.makinglifebetter.com/micr...ton-cup-a-soup
