My wife doesn't consider any of my favourite vegetables to be vegetables.  Potatoes, corn, garlic and onions.

 

re: potatoes, the line I hear from her the most is, "it's not a vegetable it's a starch".  :|

Many veggies have a lot of starch. It just has more than most. Potatoes are actually pretty nutritious, even without the skin! But it's a problem if it's your main source of vegetables because of its high carb content and the fact that's it's typically prepared with a lot of fat.
