Funeral Arrangements

Yesterday was a very sad day in the research laboratory. With regret I am informing all that loved my little F.W. crayfish that she has passed on from this crustacean world. It was a terrible tragedy and all those involved are being punished.

The incident: During my absence on Friday due to an all day waste of time seminar, Fat S. crayfish decided to venture in the neighboring tank. While in said tank, Fat S. also took it upon himself to eat little F.W. crayfish.

After much scolding and sad looks, Fat S. has been grounded and will not see the forceps anytime in the near future.

He apologizes for the rash act of cannibalism and regrets his decision.

In addition, upon incident, all crayfish have been put on lock down and will not enjoy said liberties again.

So..please a moment of silence for F.W. who enjoyed life and just wanted a hug at the end of the day.

In memory of F.W. -- who brought much joy to our lives....

@Sakshi-- It is not the same without her.. and the new crayfish isn't nearly as entertaining. Who would have guessed that one could get so attached to a little crayfish. She was the fastest learner and the only to remember it next time. She will be missed!

God dammit all!

I leave the lab and the whole world goes to hell. I can imagine the realization of the carnage with you pumping your fists in the air and asking “WHY GOD WHY?” Fat S. should be punished to the fullest extent of the crayfish order! Which is of course something I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s really bad.

But it brought a funny thought: "What if" modern humans had social structure but still had cannibalistic tendencies (which I guess some tribes do as does the Donner party)? For example, you are grading retard 350 homework papers and all the sudden Mohati falls over the wall and eats you. Kinda the same, if you look at it from a "Far Side" perspective? Maybe not...I’ll shut up now.

Yeah...I blame you....where are you with your iron fist keeping all of us in line?

You know you are right about how weird it would be if humans did that (aside from known offenders)..I will definetly be watching Mohati a little closer now!

It's just a crayfish eat crayfish world out just never know...
