Fregetable : noun : [frej-tuh-buhl]

Definition: A vegetable-type food that is technically a fruit.

     Well apparently a pumpkin is actually a fruit.  As is squash.  And cucumbers too?  Too keep my mind from being blown over Thanksgiving weekend I had to invent a new word to describe said vegetables-that-are-actually-fruits.  I mean, I knew a tomato was a fregetable already; I've always liked saying, "Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad."  But pumpkins? And cucumbers?  My mind is still recuperating from that discovery.  Luckily I can cope by just calling the fregetables, because that's what they are.
