    C’mon, GS, you don’t fool me. If these are Fiddler crabs, where are the fiddles? Huh? Huh? Huh?

    Now if you could work Fiddler crabs and Oliver Sacks into the same blog, we could at least get a little Sacks and Violins to spice things up….

    i am sure the birds went crazy with all this fresh crab meat available to them (and i’d guess, fresh crab eggs as well).

    I thought of that quote too when I saw the picture, its from a Bugs Bunny cartoon. I thought I would be the only person who knew it!
