Augusten Burroughs
‘A Tuna Christmas’ is the second in a series of plays created by Joe Sears and Jaston Williams featuring the fictional town of Greater Tuna, the third-smallest town in Texas. What makes these plays so hysterically funny is the accurate portrayal of small-town life in the Lone Star State.

My husband would say my signature dish is pasta with a tin of tuna plonked on top. So, no. Although I make a good bangers and mash. I have been known to stick cocktail umbrellas in it, take a photo and send it to James upstairs with a text saying, ‘Your food’s ready’.

You ever go to shop for tuna, and it says “dolphin safe”, and you look at it and kind of go, “Yeah, but”-like somehow you think it’s not going to be as good? Like, “I want to do the right thing-but it’s probably kind of bland without the dolphin.”
Louis C. K.
People like to play with the tuna, sometimes.

I am grateful for what I call well-spent moments: Making a tuna fish sandwich with the works. Taking at least a half hour to eat it outside. Ironing my vintage tea towels while watching old black-and-white film noir movies and sipping one martini with extra olives – a quirky combination, but it works.

Since I began exploring the ocean in the 1950s, 90 percent of the big fish have been stripped away. Tuna, sharks, swordfish, cod, halibut, you name it, the numbers have just collapsed. Also, about half of the coral reefs are gone, globally, from where they were just a few decades ago.

Rick Riordan
The show [ Too Much Tuna] changed a lot, actually, which is risky when you get positive critical feedback.

The universe does not revolve around you; this planet isn’t privileged in any unique way; your country is not the perfect product of directed, intentional fate; and that tuna sandwich you had for lunch was not plotting to give you indigestion.
