Hey, did you hear about Charlie?
No, what happened?
Well you know he’s been working for Starkist all these years and they finally fired him.
What? They fired him? How come?
He lost his luster, his appeal as he aged, and the public lost their taste for poor Charlie.
Oh, yeah, remember one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish? They all got sold when Dr. Seuss passed in 1991, so sad. They were great guys, always up for a laugh.
Well, same thing happened to Charlie. Starkist corporation decided television audiences thought Charlie stunk and he got canned.
