Sweet Yam Friends?

During a heated exchange regarding food choices (I tend to have these quite often), I was trying to explain to a friend that yams and sweet potatoes are different. However, it was quite difficult to convince him of this considering I had NO real evidence to back up my claim. In the end, I was validated (as usual). TRIUMPH.

Let's all reap the benefits of my research:

My God! I had no idea. I wonder if I was mistaking what we have for yam friendship all along?

Yamship.

I would also like to point out that this discussion was inspired by the online menu for Quantum Leap, which lists an item as "Sweet Yam Fries."

Sweet yamship.

I'd just like to point out that "a friend" is me. I'd also like to dispute that our conversation was "heated." Animated, perhaps, but certainly not heated.
