Thread: Canned tuna

  1. #1
    Dimitri Guest

    Default Canned tuna

    Those rat bastards are at it again.

    I noticed in the food ads many are running tuna (it's Lent no surprise
    there).

    What is a surprise is the ads list the cans at 5 ounces.

    I double checked the cans in the pantry they're all 6 ounces.

    That's a 16% reduction in content.

    IIRC the normal can (no such thing) was 7.5 ounces.

    Screw them I'm moving to P B & J or egg salad.

    It's ridiculous

    There was a time when you could use 1 can for creamed tuna on toast.......

    No More.

    Now it takes two cans.

    The recipe I use for tuna noodle casserole only calls for 1 can, but one of
    the current cans and the condition of the tuna, you need a good 2 cans to
    find any in the dish. :-)

    Even with the old 6oz cans, when you squeezed out all the water and put the
    remaining meat on the scale, it maxed out at 4ozs.

    Speaking of big fish (or mammals, in this case) - I was watching the
    History channel and there was a promo in the bottom corner (you know
    how they do that all the time) saying the tongue of a blue whale
    weighs as much as an elephant. That's big!

    The story of a blue whale feeding and breeding ground off the coast of
    California will be on the National Geographic channel the first week in
    March. Was featured in the March issue of National Geographic. Amazing
    creatures.

    I'm looking forward to that program too!

    I've never seen a blue, only humpbacks.

    I love whales.

    I was casually strolling along the beach in Maui all by myself, not another
    person in sight. I turned to look across the water and not 100 feet
    offshore a humpback whale gently rose out of the water and coasted along
    with me for a few seconds (as if to say hello) and then just as gently
    disappeared under the water. I took it as a good omen. I felt honored! I
    turned around and around looking for witnesses... nobody!!!

    I got to La Haina later that day and bought a gold whale's fluke charm that
    since 1983 I've worn around my neck to this day. I rub it for good luck on
    occasion.

    The memory certainly hasn't faded.

    Best,

    Andy

    That's awful! I was already BARELY getting two sandwiches out of
    the smaller cans. (One can't always--or maybe EVER these
    days--afford that lovely Italian tuna) Oh, remember to check the
    ingredients too--I don't like the sneaky addition of vegetable
    protein....

    There is a cable television network called Cartoon Network (CN). At
    night,
    they show a group of cartoons that are probably not suitable for
    children (Adult Swim). One of those cartoon is called Robot Chicken.

    Frankly, it's amazing that I know these things. I ascribe it to the
    fact that I
    will read damned near anything, and remember almost everything that
    I read.

    If I might add - Adult Swim are for the most part Japanese Animation
    commonly referred to as ANIME - pronounced annie-mae.

    This art form stemmed from the Japanese Graphic Novels (we call Comic Books)
    called MANGA - 99% of these deal with adult subject matter hence "Adult
    Swim" as a name for the CN late night time slot.
