If they didn't want to die, they wouldn't walk into those crab traps. If they didn't want to be seasoned with Old Bay, cracked open, and enjoyed with hot butter, they would have evolved meat that didn't taste good with those things. It's science.

Shouldn't this be in the new food tab?

I get so confused with the new format...it's kinda like I'm homeless now.

But fark bully breeds of dogs?  Fark PETA.
 
2018-09-11 04:21:39 PM  
PETA, you have far outstripped your credibility. Please go gently into that good night. Don't trip over the dog.
 
2018-09-11 04:21:58 PM  
Why isn't PETA doing more to stop crabs from eating other crabs?
 
2018-09-11 04:23:11 PM  
I've got some bad news for those crabs, then.
 
2018-09-11 04:23:15 PM  
Lots of things in Baltimore don't want to die. If they were serious about not dying, they'd GTFO of Baltimore.

I was just talking to someone about it having been awhile since I had any good crab Rangoons. Thanks for reminding me to go out for Chinese food tonight.

If those PETA people ever got crabs, they'd want them dead and gone.

Haven't had crabs in ages. Now i haz a sad.

/fark you, PETA

Yes, their fear of death is what makes them delicious...so very delicious.

Like those 90 elephants shot by poachers because Rwanda isn't enforcing a shoot to kill policy on poachers anymore.

So excuse me if I don't feel too bad about crabs.

What about stone crab?  You only rip off one of their claws, toss them back, and they grow a new one.

Mmmmmmmmm....stone crab.

PETA should at least pay for humane euthanasia in your kill only shelter before they go after people eating. Right now they'll often use a gas chamber. Sick hypocritical scum.
 
2018-09-11 04:26:03 PM  
Fu*k you PETA.
 
2018-09-11 04:26:31 PM  
Crabs are basically sea bugs.  Is PETA going to start defending mosquitoes and spiders, too?

Jameis Winston stole those crabs to set them free from the fate of death.

Can I morally justify eating meat? No, no I can not.  Can I find a marinade that is so sinfully good that I will not care?  Why yes, yes I can.

Speaking as someone born and raised in Bmore, but who can't have crabs anymore because of gout, fark PETA. Crabs and their preparation and the time it takes to pick and eat them are the only thing keeping us from killing each other at an even higher rate.

Oh surrre.  Here we are talking about delicious crabs, but no, it's all "crab on crab violence."

Speaking of Baltimore, I hope PETA ends up like Frank Sobotka.

/And if I ever buy a boat, I'm naming it FRANK SOBOTKA'S REVENGE.

From an evolutionary point of view crabs are pretty low on the food chain.  Anything that breeds in such colossal numbers in order to support their population, is basically meant to be eaten.

Which says to me that no matter how intelligent; no matter what they want; they are food.

Consider that humans have been harvesting crabs for long enough now that the populations have figured out how to sustain themselves.  If we stop eating them now, they will overpopulate and starve themselves into extinction.  Not to mention the damage they would cause pretty much every other population of sea creatures.

I'm trying, damn it.

PETA started with noble beginnings and simply lost their minds over the years.

If I'm ever in some apocalyptic moment where I'm about to starve, the dog is going first followed by my cats.  Then the neigbor's pets.  Then....the neighbors.
 
2018-09-11 04:35:20 PM  
I think PETA should get serious about their activism and start murdering humans.  Then, they can bake the corpses of their victims into leaves of tasty bread, and sell it to further fund their endeavors.  They could call it PETA bread...

Fellow gout sufferer here.  I've been taking allopurinol for a couple of years now and it's really helped. I mean really really helped. I can even drink wine and occasional beer. Lobster used to be my trigger food, and I'm still afraid to try it. But I can eat all the crabs and shrimp I like. Give it a try. The crabs may not thank me, but you will. Good luck.

Baltimore Crabs:  Not worth the effort

/The larger breed crabs or lobster are great when stuck in butter for 30 minutes along with other buttery and salted vegetable things...
but those tiny little red farkers aren't worth the newspapers you put on table.

And once again they make the argument about themselves instead of helping people understand the bigger picture. The biggest threat to the planet is farm animals, not wild crabs. Yes, we need to stop eating them, but the comparative difference we can make by going after them as opposed to, say, ending the factory farm beef industry, isn't even close.

Crabs will drag other crabs back into a bucket when they try to escape. Crabs are assholes. Tasty tasty assholes.

My dad taught me this little rhyme before I was 10.  Would have me recite it for his friends' amusement sometimes.

Put on that old blue ointment
to the crabs' disappointment
spread it on thick and thin
though it burns and it itches
but it kills those sons-a-biatches
and they won't be back again.
