Duncan the humble crab and Kate the Lobster Princess were
madly, deeply and passionately in Love. For months they
enjoyed an idyllic relationship until one day Kate scuttled over to Duncan
in
tears.

"We can't see each other anymore..." she sobbed.

"Why?" gasped Duncan.
"Daddy says that crabs are too common," she wailed. "He
claims you are a mere crab, and a poor one at that, and crabs
are the lowest class of crustacean...and that no daughter of his will
marry someone who can only walk sideways."

Duncan was shattered, and scuttled sideward away into the
darkness to drink himself into a filthy state of aquatic
oblivion.

That night, the great Lobster ball was taking place.
Lobsters came from far and wide, dancing and merry making, but
the lobster Princess refused to join in, choosing instead to sit by her
father's side, inconsolable.

Suddenly the doors burst open, and Duncan the crab strode in.
The Lobsters all stopped their dancing, the Princess gasped
and the King Lobster rose from his throne.
Slowly, painstakingly, Duncan the crab made his way across the
floor...and all could see that he was walking, not sideways,
but FORWARDS , one claw after another!

Step by step he made his approach
towards the throne, until he finally looked King lobster in the eye.

There was a deadly hush..................................

For quite a while...........................

Finally, the crab spoke.......

"****, I'm pissed."
