Pumpkin = Fruit

edit: aware they mentioned such absurdities in their "Some kind of plant" section.

This shirt is blatant ignorance. I would look like a fool wearing it! You want me to look like a fool Woot!?

This is an awesome shirt, and I want one.... but my "CDO" won't allow me to call a fruit a "vegetable". Or is the pie a lie? Either way, now I am craving pumpkin pie... thanks

It's considered a vegetable when served with a meal. It's dang cute and I'll be wearing one. Yay 2nd place.

Any edible plant is a vegetable.

False. Fruits and vegetables come together. It's all about the seeds. Fruit holds the seeds. Vegetables are the leafy bits. So, pumpkin leaves are a vegetable, but we eat the fruit bit in our pumpkin pies.

That's what makes edible fruits a subsection of vegetables. Only fruits hold seeds, all edible plants are vegetables. So all edible fruits are also vegetables, not all vegetables are also fruit.

maybe I'm wrong. Internet seems to be leaning that way. I read it in a botany book, but I don't feel like digging it out or looking through the internets anymore

Tomatoes are commonly called vegetables, and they are actually a fruit. I'm used to thinking of the pumpkin as vegetable also-- unless I'm taking a science test or something...

All I know is I'm crazy about pumpkin pie or any other way to eat pumpkin. I used to request pumpkin pie for my birthday instead of cake, even though my birthday falls in the dog days of summer.

So, I'm happy it won and I'm getting one!

Wow, so herbs are just spicy vegetables, and lemons too are vegetables?? Something about this just doesn't seem right...but I guess vegetation would describe all plants (edible or not) so vegetables would too....this is blowing my mind in the most terrible way.

Cucumber. Peppers. Zucchini.

Fruits or vegetables?

Both.
