For That Matter, is “A Breath of Fresh Air” Actually a GOOD Thing For a Shark?

Jim Moore: “I don’t get this. Is the joke supposed to be that Sid is supposed to be an optimist, but he’s actually a pessimist? Or maybe, since Sherman said ‘Uh-oh,’ Sid’s nickname is actually ironic?”


  1. My guess, the cartoonist is saying: “Our environment is in such trouble, even the optimists are anticipating disaster.”

  2. It seems clear that both Sherman and whats-her-name are being sarcastic with their comments in the first panel.

  3. You know, I’m going to revise my comment. I don’t think whats-her-name was being sarcastic. I think, as Bill indicated in his headline, calling someone a “breath of fresh air” probably isn’t a compliment in Sherman’s Lagoon.

  4. Her name is Megan FYI. They are the Shrek and Fiona of the Deep.

  5. Nah, just seems to be your basic “People change after high school” thing. Sid was so happy and perky 12 years ago, but now that he’s an adult, the world has crushed him down.
