From our friends at The Onion: A new challenge for sockeye

We all know Snake River sockeye face the longest, most arduous journey of any sockeye in the world.

But our friends at The Onion have discovered a whole new challenge for this already put-out fish, climbing 6,500 feet of elevation and crossing a time zone, for Pete’s sake, to reach their Idaho spawning grounds.
