    Default You can tuna piano, but you can't piano a tuna

    What does it mean? Tuna is a kind of fish but I don't know whether there is a verb form of tuna. Also, Has piano a verb form ? ( Like; piano = play piano )

    Default Re: You can tuna piano, but you can't piano a tuna

    As an NES but not a teacher, I would say that it is a "play on words".

    "You can tuna (= tune a) piano but you can't piano a tuna."
