Rice is a legume?

rikboyee - 2007-05-28: 01:00:00
it has bean for a while now

If there is no pulse after a nitrogen fix, check for dry pellets or signs of pea.

Clayton - 2007-05-28: 04:55:00
Too funny. Peas keep it up. Apparently rice is of the family Poaceae, and legumes Fabaceae. They share the same division, Magnoliopsida, but not the same class or order, so they're not very closely related as far as I can tell. But my thumb isn't so green, either.

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2007-05-28: 08:47:00
Thank you for the question and clarifications. I apologize for my loose conjugglation. I was merely trying to plant a seed (or even provide a barrelful of seeds) that would allow our verbotomists to leguritate in a little verbal lentitillation, and perhaps climax with a grammatical tactileguminosaeity. To encourage this kind of wild inpulsation, perhaps we should change the definition to read "... a barrelful of rice, legumes, seeds, candies, or any other dry pellet-shaped objects." ~ James

Clayton - 2007-05-28: 18:03:00
Why stop there? Let's include moist things, too, like baked beans, caviar, and goose liver.
