RIP Soupy

I was writing about how to use a tunafish sandwich to teach math, e.g. Pythagoras, and how mathematicians used to be philosophers, e.g. René Descartes. Then, I heard about the death of Soupy Sales and decided to write about that today. I think comedians can be philosophers too. Thanks to Pythagoras we can figure the area of half a tunafish sandwich. Thank to Soupy we have pies in the face and White Fang.

Giant tuna fish sandwich

Even though Salty will not eat a tuna fish sandwich for any reason they have other uses. For example, wouldn't half giant tuna fish sandwich sliced diagonally make a wonderful gnomen for a giant sundial? Here is one of San Francisco's giants. Not the best place for sundials, but we do have our sunny days if few between. The sundial pictured here was placed by ancient astronauts so they can tell time from outer space.

Early forms of barter

Tuna fish sandwiches were among the earliest forms of barter. The best pre-made ones are found in the refrigerator at Walgreen's on Market St. near Old Navy. They come cut in half in the perfect little triangular hard plastic container. This keeps them very fresh. Plus Walgreen's has some really weird a** people to watch. Avoid Saran wrapped 'wiches which "steams" them causing a strange odor to emit.
