“If you can drink a drink, then why can’t you food a food?”

"If you can drink a drink, then why can;t you food a food?” is a question that has been printed on many images. “Drink” can be both a noun and a verb, but “food” is just a noun. (The verb is “eat” instead of “food.")

“Isn’t it weird that you ‘drink’ a drink but you don’t food a food...?” was cited on Twitter on October 12, 2010. “If you can drink a drink then why can’t you food a food?” was cited on askreddit on September 26, 2014.
