Question.

Since many of you reading this are vegetarians, I would like to ask an important question:

Why do so many people say that poultry and fish are not meat?

I heard some coworkers talking the other day about being vegetarian. One stated that she was a vegetarian, but still ate fish. When asked why, she responded "Fish is poultry." Now you and I both know that fish is clearly not poultry, but why is it that fish aren't meat? Is it because they're cold-blooded? That at least has a fair amount of logic to it, but I don't understand the chicken argument. Is an animal not an animal unless it's a mammal?

Please discuss, especially if you're NOT a vegetarian. I want to understand this misconception, so that I know exactly WHY I'm punching people in the face.
