Yeah, this post is about my dinner.

I had what I believe the kids call a "tuna melt" tonight.  There was tuna and there was melted cheese.  Is there anything else in a tuna melt?  I'm not going to look it up, but feel free to enlighten me in the comments.  This of course reminded me of that ages old, famous philosophical debate, "What the heck is canned tuna anyway?"  It just doesn't seem right that a meat can be put in a can and stay "fresh" for years, much less a fish based meat.  It's a well known fact that most fish meat becomes rancid within 2 hours of being removed from the recently deceased fish from whence it came.  Tuna defies the laws of nature.  Please help me spread awareness by posting this picture everywhere:

Please note that I do enjoy tuna, so I'm not really anti-tuna, I just want to redefine tuna in a dictionary sort of way, not in a practical, get-in-my-tummy sort of way.  Keep fishin' for tuna says I!

Two things:

1. Excellent drawing of a tuna.

2. I think you could can any fish and it would stay fresh, but nobody wants a chopped salmon sandwich . . . right?

I would eat a salmon sandwich. But then again, I would eat anything, and also I subsided on tuna melts for a couple months this year, and liked it.

I view the tuna's ability to defy the laws of nature as something that should be praised, not punished.

I, for one, welcome our new tuna overlords.

Madelyn: Thank you! And I still believe it is unnatural.

Syar: Your eating habits are disturbing, but I don't think we're covering any new ground with that comment.

Cofo: The tuna will rule us all one day, mark my words! (that might be the worst ominous warning ever.)
