What do I do with it once it turns back into a moon crab?

Now, the beancounters told me we literally could not afford to buy $7 worth of moon rocks, much less 70 million. Bought 'em anyway. Ground them up, mixed them into a gel, and guess what: ground-up moon rocks are pure poison.

Omnipotus sounds like a giant mech built out of ex-presidents...somebody call the Nicolle brothers...

That's either "every river" or "every president", I can't tell which.

FTA It's not from any of the Nasa missions to the moon -- it's illegal to sell those rocks, though some ne'er-do-wells have tried --

Many museum gift shops will sell small meteorite fragments for less than £10, but those will unfortunately usually lack either rare minerals or evidence of alien life.

I thought that was the new name for Obama. Maybe if he wins it will be.

I thought Omnipotus was Robert Kirkman's version of Galactus.
