    shocked2 40,000 'devil' crabs wash up on Kent coast

    Aaaaaaaah!!!!!!!! More dead animals!!!!1

    Thousands of dead crabs have washed up along the Kent coast, with environmental experts believing the cold weather in Britain is to blame.

    The Velvet swimming crabs - also called devil crabs - are thought to be victims of Britain's coldest December in 120 years, which left sea temperatures much lower than average.


    More than 40,000 of the crabs - Britain's largest swimming crab - are littering beaches around Thanet, along with smaller numbers of whelks, sponges and anemones.

    I always suspected the poms had crabs.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Someone told the crabs to come ashore in the hope of watching the Aussie batsmen put up some serious competition.
