|Lab Crabs, Ole and Lena love a good joke now and then.|
Scientist at Bridgeport University obtained a grant in 2006 to study our little beach buddies and built a small lab on Bridgeport Beach where they began a ten year study.
The prestigious Dr. Nove Ember, the foremost and leading Crabologist, headed up the study and is now writing his memoirs, which will be titled, "My First Encounter With Crabs".
|The dreaded pubic crab.|
Dr. Ember told of being startled when he heard them telling jokes to each other. His favorite, "Hey Lena, have you heard from your ma? No Ole, she got scratched." The two crabs broke out into a fervent laugh and Dr. Ember realized they were talking of their cousin crab, the pubic crab. "I have been home to these pesky little cousins and do not recommend relationships with them."
As for the sand crabs, further studies have shown sand crabs enjoy the weekends more than weekdays and like to play between human toes. All in all they lead a cheerful life and should be renamed, Dr. Ember told OFF THE WALL NEWS.
He has applied for another grant that will aid in renaming these little rascals. His favorite name right now is Sand Clowns. Time will tell.
