The Clam Show

Image

Razor clams are the buried treasures of Hood Canal.

During his talk at the Seabeck Haiku Getaway 2017, David Berger explained clam digging is a family activity.

At low tide, everybody goes on the beach to dig for clams with shovels and buckets.

If you see bubbles on the surface of the water, it means there’s a clam buried in the sand. This is  called…. the Clam Show.

This Old Pond comic is inspired by a SHARP 2017 talk by Lisa Gitelman, New York University: “Emoji Dick, Prequels and Sequels”.

Did you know Amazon produced a translation of Moby Dick using emoji? The book is called Emoji Dick. It could have been a fun project. Unfortunately the book is gibberish, as most translations were produced randomly. Here are some pictures:
