Dear New Jersey: You can’t be this stupid

by

A group of fourth grade students from New Jersey currently want the state to declare the tomato as its official vegetable.  Apparently, there is a fourth grade teacher at Warren County’s Memorial School that wants to not only teach her students that tomatoes are vegetables, but to legislate it as such.

Still a fruit in all 50 states.

I don’t understand the lesson here.  Is she trying to teach her students that government officials are morons?  That at the whim of cute kids and sycophant lawmakers, we can change fruits into vegetables, eyes into ears, and Stephenie Meyer into Shakespeare?  War is not Peace and 2 + 2 does not equal 5.   At least for now.
