techincally "non-zero sum" but illustrative in any case since it could be attached to the non-for-profit foundation.

He could branch out from the Atlantic to a food column. Call it "Non-Zero Yum".
It was my attempt at a pun. It was derived, on the one hand, from "non-zero sum" --> "sum non-zero" --> "some non-zero", and, on the other hand, from the following imagined dialogue:

Critic A (while watching Bob): "Who is this guy?"
Critic B: "Some zero, I guess."
Bob (to B): "I'll have you know that I'm not a zero. I'm a non-zero."
Critic B (to A): "Oh. I guess it's some non-zero, then."

I guess the explanation can't make it less funny, if it already wasn't funny.
