More Fun With Google Images

I spend a lot of time looking at images in Google's Image section. I make a lot of my own teaching materials, and was putting together a set for the 2nd graders this morning. They're going to be doing "underwater animals" this month, so I needed to find a picture of a crab.

Now! I grew up in sunny California, in a part where things like cockroaches, locust swarms, and giant face sucking alien crabs that want to steal your garbage don't exist. I'm just saying, because perhaps I've lived a sheltered life...

All I'm going to say is this: If I was taking the garbage out on the way to work one day, and saw this fucking thing attached to my garbage can, I'd promptly go back inside the house, get my wife and child, and get on an airplane to far from WHEREVER the fuck this kind of thing is 'normal'. This is apparently a "Coconut Crab", and probably got its name because beating it with a coconut is the only thing you can do if confronted with one. Bullets probably just bonce off the shell, and make it enrage. Tranq shot is a no go. Just throw a coconut at it and fucking run.

Maybe you're into that kid of thing, and want to look at coconut crab pictures all day on Google. Knock yourself out, kiddo. I'm certainly not going to create a link to make it easier on you, because I've already been traumatized by this one image already.

Good day.

F*CK ME! That thing is huge!!!

I wouldn't want to go running on the beach late at night during the breeding season of those things!!!

Although there has got to be a couple of kilos worth of juicy coconut flavored crab meat on that sucker!

I'm pretty sure I shot quite a few of those things while playing Fallout 3.
