You never know when a shark typhoon might strike.

That just gave me another silly thought. You need an island to cast that spell. The nearest islands are in the middle of Lake Michigan (unless I'm missing any). How are you going to get the sharks back to Illinois? Well, the card says they're flying sharks, so you ride on one of the flying sharks as if it was a dragon.

Where are there islands in the middle of Lake Michigan? Only the northern part of the lake has islands.

I was thinking middle as in "not next to the mainland", not as in "geographic center". Yes, that just means you'll need to ride your flying shark farther.

No sharks.  But whales, yes.  https://www.grandhavenwhalewatching.com/

That'd probably have to be somewhere around here.

That would insinuate there was a shark to actually jump over.

Somewhere last week, I saw a map of shark attacks. Surprisingly, some shark attacks were reported in states like Kentucky and Missouri. At first, people thought there were sharks that had navigated up from the Gulf of Mexico, but turns out the attacks happened in aquarium settings. They were still cataloged, though.

So maybe there are sharks in flat Illinois.

I mean, whether it's in an aquarium or not, a shark attack is a shark attack.

So you guys are saying that Crash is going to get eaten by a shark on the desolate plains of flat Illinois?

Yes
