Many of you might remember that back in 2012, the Shrine held a "Name That AquaDog" contest, with "Salty" being named the winner out of a few dozen possibilities. We of course didn't expect this to be binding on anything, but we thought if we could help Geoff Johns and DC out, why not?
Well, sometime last year, Geoff himself informed us that, indeed, he had decided to name the AquaDog "Salty" as a result of our poll! For some bizarre reason, I'm ashamed to say, I completely forgot to mention it here on the Shrine, and it was up to Shrine Correspondent Joe Slab to remind me when it came up again yesterday.
Now, Salty has not appeared in Aquaman in quite a while, but it's only a matter of time. So know that when he does show up, and we see his name in an *official* DC Comic, it's because of what all of you did here on the Shrine. Be proud Aqua-Fans: it may be small, but we have added something to the Official History of Aquaman! Woof! Woof!
Special thanks to Geoff Johns for being a good sport, and F.O.A.M.er Simone Mularkey for coming up with the name in the first place!
