Quahog Man stands tall in Tiverton

It appears the Quahog Man is the talk of the town in Tiverton.

The eight-and-a-half-foot plywood figure of a quahogger was dreamed up by a group of Tiverton High School students.

The students are now working on a comic book depicting the adventures of their clam-digging superhero, and the figure could find a permanent home in the courtyard outside the school's cafeteria.
