”Is this chicken what I have, or is this fish?” Jessica Simpson, who posed that infamous question when faced with the baffling sight of a can of Chicken of the Sea tuna, may finally have put her confusion to rest. The bubble-headed star of MTV’s ”The Newlyweds” paid a visit to the San Diego headquarters of Chicken of the Sea on Tuesday, where a marketing exec explained the origin of the product’s name (surprise — it’s supposed to taste like chicken).

Chicken of the Sea senior vice president Don George said in a statement: ”We hope Jessica will continue to enjoy Chicken of the Sea, and with the new chunkier chunk light, she and other consumers will get a firmer product with larger pieces for the same great taste and low price.” Ah, ”chunkier chunk light”: the sweetest sin.
