Yet another life lesson I should have learned earlier

It took me until the latter half of my 47th year on this planet to learn the difference between "solid white albacore tuna" and "chunk light tuna." And, I am sorry to say, it is not an insignificant difference. There's a reason that one variety is $2.50 a can, and one is 10 cans for $5.

For me, it's about the same difference as between "solid white albacore tuna" and "Spam."

If you want more details, you can find a factual description here, and a humorous (and sadly familiar) description here. As a young friend of mine would say, "Yuck-o-rama." Guess I know what's going in the next canned-food drive...
