Episode 13 - Tunafish




Hey.  Y'know what really grinds my gears?  When people say "tunafish" instead of just "tuna".  I mean, why add the phylum?  As opposed to what other kind of tuna?  Are there furry tuna with four legs running around on land?  It's like, "Hey, I'll have the turkeybird sandwich," or "Our burgers are made with 100% angus beefmammal."  I mean, what's the deal?

"Fish" isn't a phylum. What are commonly referred to as fish are the six phyla:

Leptocardii (lancelets)
Petromyzontida(also called Hyperoartia)(lampreys)
Chrodrichthyes (cartilaginous fish)
Sarcopterygii(lobe finned fish)
Actinopterygii (ray finned fish)
