Not tuna

Recommended Posts

Any food that requires you to fumigate your mouth afterward is to be avoided. Who's with me?

Also, I'm pretty sure I heard there are dolphin snouts in tuna. One moment those snouts are chirping out a beautiful language, and the next instant they're being packed into a round can headed for Syracuse.

The Great A&F Tuna War. The thing about the dolphin snouts could be true, though. I've noticed an increased propensity to sing like Jonsi from Sigur Ros after eating tuna. Coincidence?

The problem is that many lunch time alternatives to simple tuna-like proteins have an immensely narcotic effect on me. The chinese take-away down the street, for example, has often lead to fugue-like afternoons in which I begin semi-consciously drafting lecture notes about the existential qualities of orality in Balkan folk culture. Or covering up little puddles of drool with post-it notes.

Tuna is the prime rib of the sea. But it should be eaten raw, with a dash of soy sauce. Not out of a can.

Anders is correct. Tuna in a can is straight from the pit of hell. A tuna steak or sashimi from a Japanese restaurant is divine.

If you're talking sushi, I much prefer salmon over tuna.

Well, yeah, but I thought we were talking about cubicle-ready fare, here. No Bento Box required.

Yes, a decent toro is outside of the parameters of this discussion.

Tuna is from the pit, but so is any fish brought to work in tupperware and heated up in the microwave. Whatsoever cometh from leftover ocean dwellers is evil.

OH. OH, AAAAAAUUUUUGH!!! There's your trouble.. Canned tuna has already been cooked. You don't heat it in the mike, or put it near anything baked. I don't care what the deaconesses at Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility think. Tuna from a can is decent in a salad. A salad. Nicoise to pasta salad. Of COURSE, raw tuna, or blood rare sushi grade fresh tuna is better than canned. Heck, Fresh gazpacho is better than Campbell's Tomato Soup too.

Your Honor, we stipulate that anything canned is less than its fresh version. Even than its frozen version. However, the Defense would like to point out that plausible and proper uses of tuna from a can do exist.

Tuna comes in steaks? (My rural Canadian roots are showing)

Yes. When it comes to fish, if a fillet (or a fish's flank) is thick enough, or large enough, once filleted, one can then chop the meat into steaks. Swordfish, Shark, Hallibut, and Sturgeon are prepared this way, among others. A "small" Tuna can way 15 to 20 lbs. Except Bonito which is considered the least of the Tuna species.


"During the contest trial, the Coleman team presented evidence of a further 6500 absentees that it felt deserved to be included under the process that had produced the prior 933 [submitted by Franken, rk]. The three judges finally defined what constituted a 'legal' absentee ballot. Countable ballots, for instance, had to contain the signature of the voter, complete registration information, and proper witness credentials.

But the panel only applied the standards going forward, severely reducing the universe of additional basentees the Coleman team could hope to have included. In the end, the three judges allowed about 350 additional absentees to be counted. The panel also did nothing about the hundreds, possibly thousands, of absentees that have already been legally included, yet are now 'illegal' according to the panel's own ex-post definition."
