Sage-Umm Yes She Gave Me Crabs, what to do?

So now that I have your attention. I found out Saturday that I had crabs. After being on the road for a week with a salesman I come home and have crabs! WTF?

Well I wasn't sure how to react really so.....













I ate em.

Well someone caught up a bunch of crabs and gave em to ma-in-law. Well if y'all haven't eaten a lot of crabs then you might not know that when they slept in the sea last night you have to bust the shell and root the meat out. Well they make tools for such a thing but when you are an unsophisticated 'neck you don't need such things. Crab busting tool:



Well she had the three pots slap full of crabs. Two regular sized pots and one big assed pot slap full to the top of crabs. So I just filled the tray you see here under the pot up with crabs, ate them and threw those shells away, they aren't shown in the carnage.



Then I got the full other little pot that was full up just poured the water out of that one and took it and ate those. See if you don't know how to eat em first you pull the claws off then you bust em open with the needle nosed pliers and root around in there for 3 pieces of meat bout big as your pinky finger nail. Then you can pull those flappers in the back and get some decent meat on those. Well anyway then I got those eaten so with a growling stomach I went and got the big pot.



Same thing there, ate all those too. Well now I am a self described and confirmed fat boy but come on 3 pots of damn crabs and hungry? The kids had pizza and left their dear ole Dad 4 pieces and some bread sticks so I ate them and was almost full, when I got back up momma Sage scolded me and told me not to eat anything else so I did not.



2.5 hours of eating and still hungry.

There ya go, todays crab story.

It's too bad there isn't a delicious food called 'herpes'. Then it would also be fun to say "I got herpes. Want some?"

well..you had me wondering who in the hell announces this on the net, then finished with an interesting story of crabs and hunger. Nice!! I think we all have nights like those. There is a point when you have to give up trying or you'll really get fat. lol I had a similar story as a child. My dad took us all to Florida. I was about 14. We "caught" some crabs and brought them home. lol Well we caught them under a bridge and kept them in a bucket and they died before they got home, but we caught some crabs nonetheless!!! haha

My kids eat crab all the time with their mom. I only have it on special occasions. And I sure have never gotten crabs while out on the road! Haha

Happy eating

I bought the second one a few days after the fist and when I bought him he only had one claw. When I put him the tank the other one attacked him I took him out and put in a separate tank by himself but he lost his other claw.
