Traffic Delays on Virginia I-64 Make Drivers Crabby

In case you were stuck on I-64 today, the reason was a spilled load of live crustaceans blocking the lanes, and making drivers hungry. Clean up crews took longer than expected due to multiple crab claw-caused pinching injuries, and the search for very big pots.
Overall, these kind of occurrences are not unexpected because it is pretty common for truckers to bring home a case of the crabs to their wives.

  1. Remind me to leave Red Lobster (I know it’s not crab but still) out of my grub places for the next few weeks…

  2. You’d think it would have been easy to find someone who could deploy some sort of enticement to lure the crabs off the roadway. Master baiters are everywherre.

  3. Traffic Reporter: “Well it seems that everyone traveling on I-64 was steamed today, as they had to deal with a case of crabs that popped up just around 8:30, when a Hooker Trucking Company truck skidded and lost its load. The incident didn’t clear up until 10:00 AM.”

  4. “If you were stuck in a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam on I-64 today, and are suffering from pain and/or discomfort in the pelvic region, local medical experts agree that your problem may be related to crabs… Story and tape at 11…”

  5. “Dammit Claus! I told you we were nowhere near the ocean! Now what are we going to do!”
    Scuddle awaaaaay!

  6. I am so pissed I missed this! I’d have left work early to help “catch” these babies and bring em home to dinner. They are ‘SPENSIVE and tasty!!!
    Now they’re going to be even MORE expensive. Le sigh.
