'Charlie the Tuna' creator drowns

R.I.P. Charlie. Tom Rogers, creator of Starkist's Charlie the Tuna, drowned in his backyard pool on June 24. Sadly, this is not a joke.

Wow, what an ironic cooincidence. At first, I figured if they had never gotten rid of Charlie, this probably would never have happened, because Charlie could've swam up and saved him. But then I realized charlie, a common tuna accustomed to salt water, would surely have died in the chlorinated pool, leaving us with a double tragedy. It is pretty sad though. But at least after reading his bio, it sounds like had a fulfilling, interesting life, and he did go at a decent age. We could all only wish the same for ourselves. Sorry, Charlie.
