Tuesday Crustie: Hoax

Does this need to be said?

Yes, apparently, someone does need to say that there are not crabs wider than two or three cars are long. And that someone was Dr. Verity Nye:

(I)t is not inconceivable that new species could be found, but I laughed when I saw this picture.

The news article is being kind to call this a “a well-doctored hoax.” A good hoax should have some plausibility to it. This one is ridiculous.
