    I believe the common term is "brine shrimp".

    I was falling for the whole thing. This sounded so logical. lol.

    Created in 1953 by World War II veterans Woody Gelman and Wesley Morse, Bazooka Joe was reportedly started as a way for its two creators to deal with the horrors they had witnessed while fighting overseas.

    "Why do you think it's called Bazooka Joe?" said Paluschi, explaining that Morse named the strip in honor of Pvt. Joseph Weinek, who was blinded in his right eye by a surprise bazooka attack shortly before U.S. forces were overrun in the Battle of Mindanao.

    "All this time—haven't you ever wondered what's beneath Bazooka's eyepatch?" Paluschi continued. "Well, I'll tell you. It's nothing. Nothing at all—just an empty, gaping mass of pus and scar tissue. A gaping hole, one as dark and bare and devoid of all hope as the future we face."

    Now tell me that doesn't make total sense if you don't know you're reading The Onion.
