We've Got Crab Legs

A couple days ago, my hero The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door came over, and he brought a big blue cooler with him. Normally, when The Crazy Man brings a cooler over, it is usually filled with beer. But this time, there was something alive in there.

Yep, it was full of crabs! For those doggies that don't know what a crab is, it's a really hard fish with claws on its legs. Duke and I checked them out thoroughly.

Duke even tried to sniff one of the crabs butts, but he couldnt find it.

Apparently, The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door caught these crabs in a dungeon, because they are called Dungeon-est crabs. (Dukes edit: Actually, they are called Dungeness crab, and The Crazy Man caught them in Puget Sound) That Crazy Man sure is brave to go into a dungeon filled with crabs! In fact, The Crazy Man is so cool that he even ate the crabs while they were still alive! (Dukes edit: No, he didn't eat them while they were still alive. Pull your head out of your pug-butt Gidget)

Then, after The Crazy Man ate a few of the crabs, he threw the rest of them into a big pot of boiling water. I kinda felt bad for those poor crabs, until he took them out and we all enjoyed a big crab feast. Then, I didn't feel so bad for them anymore. Once again, The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door has proven why he is the coolest human on the face of the earth. You rule The Crazy Man!

Oh man you guys are making my mom drool. She says she is waiting to get home (the end of august) so she can go to the beach and get some crabs.

Those crabs when alive, look scary, but once they are cooked sure are yummy!
Glad you had enjoyed!
Have a good night

Wow, you sure do have a cool neighbor. First fish and now crab. Maybe we see him on the Discovery Channel show called Deadliest Catch. Hopes those crabs didn't pinch ya.

He must be so super brave to have gone into that dungeon...and then to eat them ALIVE? Whoa...I am so impressed.

Did you guys finally find its butt? It must have a butt; unless it's an alien or something.

How cool! Next time ask him to bring back some gooey ducks. I bet those would really freak you out.

He may be crazy, but he's cool... in a crazy sort of way.

Wow Gidget, you are brave to get so close to a live crab! I'm like you, though, in regards to cooking them. I'm such a softie I can't even put them in boiling water, but once cooked...YUM!

Hi Duke and Gidget!
You guys are so lucky to have such a great neighbour! And those crabs look cool - maybe I will get to see some when I visit Nova Scotia this summer! I'll keep you posted. :)
Love Clover xo

Yummy! You are lucky to have a crazy man next door. I don't think we'll be having any fresh crab in the near future especialy if it means going into a dungeon to get them. Spooky.

Oh boy, Mama luvs crabmeat. You're making her very hungry for some right now, hehehe. Good thing those crabs didn't latch onto your legs with their big claws. Did they snap at you??
Have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
