Pistol Shrimp

I hope none of these shrimp are felons:

I see on the wikipedia page that they are found around the world… All I can say is DAMN THAT GUN SHOW LOOPHOLE!

When these guys O.C. along the coast of California, they better not keep that claw loaded.

I hear Paul Helmke specifically requests these at Red Lobster, on the condition he can watch them being boiled alive.

I’m tapped for more jokes on this one.. what do you guys have? :P

  1. Sorry, but it sounded more like a very speeded up pump shotgun racking than a pistol cocking. They need to get their sound effects straight.

    Just gotta hope they don’t go off half cocked.

    Wonder if they like a cup of Starbucks with their shrimp?

    Damn Right Wing Radicals, you notice they wrapped themselves in a flag so only the red and white is showing.

      I wonder how many people watching that on the BBC were thinking the shrimp actually make that cocking and shooting noises. :P

    Now all we have to do is wait for Syfy to make a movie about a giant mutant one that a “research” team developed in its lab that goes on the loose because one of the really smart scientist forgot to lock the door. It starts destroying all of man kind until some Jeff Goldblum look alike scientist and his hot blonde with glasses assistant/lover comes in to save the day. They argue with the military about what can kill it, because small arms fire and .50 cal machine gun fire cannot penetrate its shell. They finally conclude that the only way to kill it is by somehow getting it inside a trap that will then be picked up by a helicopter and dropped it into a lake that is heated till it boils by the use of concentrating the sun with gigantic mirrors. While they are trying to trap the Mutant Shrimp the assistant gets killed in some freak accident that only a patient in a mental hospital could think of, the Goldblum look-alike weeps over her body as the shrimp is trapped and lowered into the lake and is cooked alive. The movie ends with the 11 star military general in is completely clean uniform standing in front of a tank saying the line “Now where is some melted butter when you need it”

    I am going to have to claim copyrights on that little piece, I’m talking to you Syfy, don’t even think about, well unless I get paid, then call me.

        Sounds good, I am going to need about $50,000 upfront from you, for um, “research”. (Shifty Eyes)
