Fish; no longer meat. :P


@TechTyger: It's super weird, but Catholics don't consider fish to be "meat" and therefore deem it acceptable to eat on holy days when you are supposed to abstain from eating meat. From my (very short) google search it seems there are a few competing theories as to why that is are 1)red meat/poultry was generally considered a "luxury" for many early christians, whereas fish was just a staple food and so you were eschewing luxury when you were fasting or 2)a pope during the middle ages wanted to give his fisherman buddies a boost and so made red meat verboten.
The one I find that makes the most sense is that most fish is considered parve in Judaism (where much of Catholic doctrine comes from) and so "not meat".


Meh. It's an animal, animals are made of meat, and religions are so bent that they make corkscrews look like lasers.
