Sherman Leaves Lagoon, Goes Fresh Water

Sherman the overweight shark took a right at the Columbia River and ended up in Lake Pend Oreille.

True story — at least on the Funnies Page.

The Coeur d’Alene Press, a dozen miles from the lake, breaks the story:

Starting Monday, the comic strip Sherman’s Lagoon plumbs the depths of a poorly kept Idaho secret: The deep-water submarine testing facility at Bayview in Lake Pend Oreille.

We won’t spoil the week-long series for you but the words “Idaho” and “conspiracy” will appear, as if one could possibly be connected with the other.

Keep track of Sherman’s Lagoon at Comics Kingdom.

The adventure began this past Wednesday.
