Tomatoes are fruit, rarely belong in a fruit salad, but is a Bloody Mary a smoothie? By far, this is better and more applicable philosophy than most of what came out of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Still though, like most philosophical quandaries that ignore the Divine, barstool philosophy is fundamentally wrong or flawed through omission and denial of fundamental Truths. While a Bloody Mary may well be a smoothie, it is also, in many cases, a meal. 😉
