Hi Jetster,

Do you eat soup or drink it?

Depends, if it comes in a cup I drink it, it served on a plate with a spoon I tend to eat it, though I slurp the last bit directly from the plate if I'm on my own? 8)

You're born alone, you die alone.  Anything in between is make believe.

Oooh, tricky. The dictionary definition says 'drink' is liquid, and 'eat' is food. However, the dictionary also says that 'drink' is used when using a cup. That's relying on common sense though. A cup of peanuts wouldn't be drank.

If the soup consists solely of liquid, such as a clear soup, then it should be technically drank, whereas a soup containing foodstuffs would be eaten.

Would it fair to say that if it's not chewable then it must be a drink?

You eat food, so if the liquid is food you both eat and drink it. What about beer ... is it food?  :)
