Greg texted me yesterday with important information about participating in a class action settlement.
A class action settlement, friends, and not just any class action settlement, like the one where you can get $20 in deodorant or the one where you can get $3.70 because you used a Talbots credit card. No; compared to this one, those lawsuits are peanuts. Peanuts, I tell you! Because this one is a class action settlement for FREE TUNA. Like, $50 worth of FREE TUNA which everyone knows is TWICE as good as $25 worth of free tuna or FIVE TIMES better than $10 worth of free tuna.
I admit, though, it did strike me as a little strange, given how much Greg and I detest anything that smacks of frivolous litigation, that Greg signed onto this settlement. Until, of course, I realized that free tuna would only cost us our conscience and our scruples. Then I was all, THAT IS TOTALLY A FAIR TRADE.
Now, Greg may not have fully understood the sincerity of my message, mistakenly taking it as sarcasm, so he explained a little more background on the issue.
And Greg was right, of course, because we cannot continue to be placid bystanders while tuna crimes are being committed all around us! When push comes to shove and fractions of tuna ounces are being omitted, we must stand for JUSTICE and THE AMERICAN WAY. And I hate to get into politics too much on this site, but when the tuna manufacturers betray us, I think we can all agree that there’s only one person likely to solve America’s Tuna Woes. “America’s Tuna Woes” being one of the key social issues of our time.
HELL STATE. That is what this country is in. A HELL STATE, friends. It is time to open our eyes to the tuna injustices all around us and to realize that Donald Trump is here to rescue us from our own folly.
In case you’re not sure yet that you’d like to vote for a man who belittles women and minorities, bullies people who question his plans and policies, and has, well, the judgement, restraint and maturity of a pickle, I am here to tell you you are wrong. You are WRONG, friends, and it may be hard to hear, but I have GOOD REASONS.
In conclusion, a vote for Trump is a vote for Tuna.
I mean, probably.
Just thought you’d want to know.
P.S. Now that I’ve had a few minutes to think about it, I wonder if I’ve been a bit hasty in my endorsement of Trump as the most pro-tuna candidate. It belatedly occurs to me that we have not vetted each candidate on his or her tuna policy. However, if we’re basing our judgement on the most fishy of all the candidates, I think we can still make our case.

You may be my favorite human. Okay, that’s clearly a lie – my daughter is my favorite. But you definitely occupy the spot above my husband.
I also L’d-OL at the pickle comment. But then it hit me: Trump is doing it intentionally to prove he’s the Tuna Candidate! I mean, really, what goes better with tuna than pickles?
I pay almost no attention to politics and I actually thought that Trump running for president was a joke when I first heard it. True story. I wish it was a joke.
SO funny! I laughed out-loud at the line about the “judgement, restraint, and maturity of a pickle” so then had to explain the whole post to my husband who thought I’d gone crazy. (Until I’d read him the post, which made him laugh out loud too!)
Best post I’ve read all day. Trump for tuna… Maybe we can kick him out on his can?
Trump would be all about ripping of lots of people to profit…I think that is kind of what he does for a living…(Reminder, he has declared bankruptcy FOUR TIMES. And he was rich at the time he did it. but the poor sods that installed his gold bathroom…)
