    After being oiled up and cooked in a can, they needed to clarify what it was you were smearing on your bread.

    I wondered that myself. I also wonder why people say eyesight, but they don’t say ear hearing.

    Because if we couldn’t rhyme tuna fish with favorite dish, where would that leave beginning piano students?
    With only crunchy flakes and ice cream? I don’t think so.

    And even though they’re made of beef, they’re called ‘hamburgers’. Or ‘steamed hams’ if you’re from Albany.

    As a kid growing up on the Southern California coast “Tunas” were the guys who made a living fishing tuna in the Pacific.

    And they always drove bitchin Buick Rivieras.

    Actually, I think I might know this one. Before about WW2, tuna was considered a “trash fish,” unsuitable for human consumption. (It was only when it was marketed in canned form — using the euphemism “chicken of the sea” — that it became socially acceptable to eat.) A lot of people, not used at the time to eating tuna, didn’t immediately know what it was, so it would often be marketed as “tuna fish.” And the usage stuck.

    We’ll be back with more “Taking the Comics Too Literally,” right after this …

    Thank goodness Danae is a comic strip character and not indicative of a normal child. Nobody would want kids.

    Well, then, YOU explain it to Danae! Better still, adopt her, and take her out of John’s misery. LOL

    I thought it was an american thing like horseback riding .

    When i was 6ish and non-bio daddys team had been flown to a dude ranch for some city slickers esque team building and I was dragged along. At ranch I was asked if I wanted to go horseback riding i asked what other part you normally sat on, got on and then hung underneath and after a few goes round i came backand said I can see the advantages then he asked me if i wanted a tuna fish sandwich and i said pretty much what danae said just substitue insults on tacos/ beefburgers and hotdogs.
