Friday Crab Blogging

An interested reader has alerted us to the existence of "crab toes." (actually crabs toes)

(Photo courtesy of courtesy of Gayle Reynolds, Kentucky.)

The term is unfamiliar to we Callinectes sapidusophiles. Perhaps it refers to the infamous: Crab Toe Ring?

More likely, we would think, it refers to a visit by our little critter friends, Sarcoptes scabiei in the interstices of your toes:

Which bears a certain resemblence to our first entry of today:

The essence of Crab!

Please note the duck in the upper right corner. Or, is it a bee?

This unfortunate crab either has Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome or has been rowing in a galley.

I think "crabs TOEs" is a covert reference to Dr. C, himself.

(The "essence of Crab" drawing reminds me of a Whoopee cushion of my childhood. Sweet memories ...)

Yes, indeed, you have deciphered it. Except you forgot the "Completely Rational Awesome and Brilliant" TOE.
