Salmon for fun

Just for fun, check out this totally Chinook-related “fish slap” emoticon.  (Is that character on the right Smiley Chinook?)

Just for fun too, I enjoyed seeing a Northwest Native word used in local Russian.  Russkii Spokane, February 2012, has an ad on page 7 for a seafood supplier who will sell you “file Koxo” (coho fillets) for $5.10 a pound.
