Is it tuna or chicken?

Is it tuna or chicken?

While the image from the menu is a little fuzzy, please squint a bit to read the legend, Grilled "Yellowfin" Tuna Sandwich.

When Jessica Simpson asked her immortal question about Chicken of the Sea, who knew that it would cause this kind of ripple-effect? Who knew that restaurateurs everywhere would begin to question the very origins of their ingredients?

Is it really "Yellowfin" Tuna or is it "Redcowl" Chicken?

I love this blog! I almost fell out of my chair laughing. My beef is with "educated" graphic designers who use the ubiquitous hash marks in place of real quotation marks. During a talk to a local AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) group, I made them aware of an organization entitled Back Porch Secretary-designers & Monkeys With Typewriters, and told them that the logo for this dubious group could be found on any computer keyboard; as a hash mark. "Use it as you deem necessary," I cautioned.

Is this like "Chilean Sea Bass" which is actually has some gross-sounding name? (I can't remember it right now)
