** Now I have to hire a lawyer
Ever since I finished building my in-ground pool, neighborhood children have been sneaking over the fence at all hours to swim without permission. I thought a giant crustacean might discourage them, but now Timmy, from five doors down, is missing and the neighbors are giving my funny looks. On the plus side, there are no longer owls on my roof.
** NO BUTTER
WARNING! Does not come with butter. You must purchase you own separate vat of butter!
WARNING do not, I repeat, DO NOT place any sensitive body parts between the claws and then apply pressure, no matter how much vaseline is applied before hand. There really should be a warning label about this problem.
***** I’ve never felt like this before.
Since my husband passed, the side of his bed has been cold, untouchable. I can’t bear sleeping without my love Ronald. I had taken a trip to my local Home Depot to locate a new pair of coveralls for my sewer swimming ventures, when I saw him. We locked eyes, and I’ve been a changed woman since. It was love at first sight. I knew I NEEDED to have him. I took out a 16th mortgage on my home, but I knew he needed to be mine. He has not left my side yet. He fills that empty space perfectly.
* PLEASE DO NOT BUY
DO NOT BUY THIS. DO NOT TRY TO OPEN THE SHELL. FOR THE LOVE OF GO
***** A serious revieww
I’m going to get right to the point; this is a good product. I needed a large, fiberglass crab (I can’t discuss why for legal reasons) and this was exactly what I needed. The details on the crab are spot on (I studied Marine Biology I at summer camp) and I think it goes without saying, it looks like the real deal. It also travels well. I had to take it to an appointment (I can’t discuss why for legal reasons) and it made all the difference. I could say so much more about this item, but I have to end it here (I can’t discuss why for legal reasons) by saying “buy this crab.”
