Am I wrong in my understanding that, at least in Tudor England, many birds and animals that *ate* fish were also considered *fish*  during Lent and on fish days?  I read it someplace, and perhaps the source was incorrect <shrug>.

A-yup. I went the whole 40 days without meat, eggs, or dairy- except 
for Sundays as Niccolo noted. Going out to eat was a pain, and there 
was plenty of time here at home that I couldn't stand the though of 
more fish so I went with a bowl of brown rice and some veggies. 
Yesterday's brunch with a slab o' Ham and eggs and milk in my tea... ahh.

I think I would not make a good vegan. Ovo-lacto vegetarian, maybe. 
But me likey cheeze too much! I can has cheeeezeee!
