I've done some jingles about some truly insignificant parts of the show before, but this could be the dumbest jingle I've finished. During old guy radio Nigel was recounting his vacation when for Tony cuts across him to talk about tuna, which kind he likes, and how he makes it. For some reason, THAT'S what tickled my funny bone. This has less of a chance to make air than the Nats have of making the playoffs. Which means it will probably lead off the show...

What's up with Tony and tuna fish?
Is this information for life?
What would we do without his recipe
He slathers the mayo on light

Woo-hoo, he buys cans galore
Woo-hoo, from the grocery store
Woo-hoo, he likes Albacore!

Oo-ee-oo Tony likes tuna in water
Oh-no, he don’t like tuna in oil
Why should we care what he says about it anyway
Why should we care bout that?

Great job, Steve! Very funny stuff here. This was my favorite segment of this weeks' shows, also inspiring me to do a jingle on the topic but I just realized when I saw this that I forgot to post it. Will do now. I'm actually surprised there aren't more on this topic :)

Robert - I've been trying to keep it around a minute lately if I can. Sometimes, however, we go long. Unlike RGIII...

As I was listening to that segment I was hoping someone would write a song about it. Great choice.

Predictably they led today's show with the tuna story, Minus the jingle, of course!
