What on effing EARTH?

Check out (above) the latest in BIZARRE vending machine foods, this one selling LIVE CRABS in China!

The machine is reportedly kept at a temperature that forces the crabs, which go for between $1.50 - $7.50 depending on size, to go into hibernation. If a customer gets a dead crab, they get it for free!

LOLs! This is absolutely insane!

Who would want that?!

    Actually this is a Japanese report about the vending machines in China.



  4. 4

    People who eat crab?



  5. 5

    how completely perfect



  6. 6

    This is so wrong, keeping animals wrapped up in plastic containers ALIVE is animal cruelty. What kind of crap is this.



  7. 7

    China just gets more disgusting by the day. Wouldn't ever set foot there even if the entire trip was free.



  8. 8

    "Who would want that?" Are you really asking that question? You are talking about the Chinese here.



  9. 9

    what's really CRAZY and INSANE is the thousands of vending machines in the states selling fatty and sugar infested "food" creating child and adult obesity in the US, #1 killer of americans, btw. fresh shell fish is SUPER HEALTHY in comparison!

    Re: Babycakes!!! – it's okay, china wouldn't want you anyways, so ignorant…



  11. 11

    Thats so cruel, i cant believe you put LOL under that post…



  12. 12

    animal cruelty, poor things dont even get to move!



  13. 13

    That is so terrible. That's torture too keep a crab in a plastic container that it can't move in. Also, when it drops down, it probably could kill it. I'm disgusted.

    Re: Babycakes!!! – AGREED!

    Perez, I love you…. but posting this blatant act of animal cruelty and shrugging it off is so dissaspointing. These animals are alive and dont deserve the treatment they're receving. You should be posting this story in support of outrage for the act rather than just "LOLs! This is absolutely insane!" — This story isnt funnay at all.

    Um, shouldn't this be on TeddyHilton for cruelty to animals?



  17. 17

    that's horrible.. poor animals..but then again those countries they always do crazy shit :(



  18. 18

    Re: justtdoitx3 – LMAO.. if the crab drops down the vending machine.. it's going to die anyways MORON. Get a clue.



  19. 19

    Re: Babycakes!!! – you're such a fucker.

    Christ, first thing I thought when I saw the headline was it must be one of those 'used panties' vending machines we've all heard about, and so thought, well who's surprised at that? eww! But live ocean crabs. Man. I guess it's no different than picking them from a tank. But what happens if you change your mind after you've made your purchase? Can't put it back, and then you're stuck walking around with a squirming crab! I don't think selling living beings via vending machine sounds very nice- but if someone's going to be craving crab, they're going to go buy it, either from a tank or a vending machine. So long as they're housed humanely I guess it's just another way of purchasing them. If you were in Japan, wouldn't you be tempted to try purchasing something from one of their crazy vending machines? One of everything? :-)

    Re: Sara Kearney – wow youre a sharp one arent you?
    it is in nanjing china it says so, just because the report is in japanese it is not in japan
    thatd be like turning on the news in the states and saying all the reports in english are in america



  22. 22

    im sure if this was the states and it had a cow in it that you could slice steaks off of, it'd be all the rage



  23. 23

    disgusting



  24. 24

    Re: Eva ping – read it lol, the temp puts them in hibernation so they are sleeping



  25. 25

    It's a story done in Japan but the machine/idea was developed from China. Get it right…



  26. 26

    Re: comedunwich – No fucking shit vending machines don't close, dumb fuck, but if you watched the video or read the article, the crabs are stored at a certain temperature so that they don't rot. DUH! Re: Eva ping
    At least one of the crabs still moved after it exited the machine, if you watched the video, so yes, they CAN move. There's no animal cruelty involved, since the conditions in the machine were healthy for the crabs, and it's not like there were cute little poodles in there. Re: cafehead1 – Perfectly said! Too bad most people aren't smart enough to look at it THAT way instead of "that's disgusting" or "eww, gross".



  27. 27

    This is absolutely heart breaking.

    Perez, how could you put a "LOL", this is an LIVE ANIMAL trapped in a plastic container for someone to pick them. Absolute cruelty. Disgusting.



  28. 28

    I'm not sure I would want crab that was kept like that - animal cruelty or not it just feels wrong - but I think it's amazing that they keep good quality food in vending machines… fruit etc.



  29. 29

    This is cruel and unnecessary. If you need crabs instantly out of a vending machine you're ridiculous. Wait until you get to a restaurant so these creatures don't have to suffer unimaginable amounts of time in a machine before you kill them. Could you serve time alone for weeks on death row waiting to die. Eat a doughnut glutton!



  30. 30

    This is horrible. How is this allowed? Its animal cruelty.



  31. 31

    They have something similar in Vegas. You can try to catch live lobsters, and if you catch one you get to get it cooked for free! It's pretty weird, but people kill and eat seafood all the time…



  32. 32

    This is so inhumane, how could anyone approve this. I can't stand watching this. Absolutely disgusting



  33. 33

    That is horrific! I can't believe they are actually allowed to do that, the poor crabs! They should put the people that dreamed up that stupid idea in the vending machines!!!



  34. 34

    ANIMAL. CRUELTY.



  35. 35

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG THAT IS HILARIOUS!!! How could all you people have such a stick up your ass and not think this is funny. Perez is the only one that got it right by the lol. This is so damn funny. I want to buy one of these and put it in a high school then film it.



  36. 36

    What happened to not being judgmental anymore? "LOLs! This is absolutely insane! Who would want that?!"
    Um, crab is part of a lot of people's diet in China so who wouldn't want that? Plus Chinese people are very sanitary with their food and diet and crab meat is healthy for you, unlike what Americans sell in their vending machines.
    It may seem weird but at least they aren't the fattest country in the world



  37. 37

    SPONGEBOB, Help!



  38. 38

    not sure if that's really animal friendly…



  39. 39

    You can get whole pecan pies in vending machines in Texas, so I can't judge. Who is to say that you shouldn't get other comfort foods depending on the locale.



  40. 40

    PEREZ HELLO THIS IS IN JAPAN CAN YOU NOT EVEN TELL THE LANGUAGE, MONEY, AND KANJI DIFFERENCE?

    woooowww



  41. 41

    Sigh, you guys are morons. even if they go into hibernation, that is still animal cruelty because they are being FORCED to do so. Selling live crabs and store them into a vending machine is not exactly human. Would you want to be stored inside a vessel and be in hibernation for weeks and finally wake up just to be eaten? get real, its best to kill the animals quick without torturing. China has the weirdest stuff going on there. I still remember when I saw that report of chinese assholes cooking live cats in a pot filled with oil. Disgusting.

    That is cruel, inhumane, and disgusting.



  43. 43

    animal cruelty? hahahaha get fucked losers!

    i guess youre all against eating crabs too, since you boil them to death.

    and your all vegetarians and vegans.

    once again, get fucked.
    especially if youre a vegetarian because of animal issues.

    GET FUCKED pls, thx

    Guys, this video may be in Japanese, but it's actually taking place in Nanjing, China. In fact, in the interview, the Chinese owner actually says to the Japanese reporter "If there ever becomes a demand for this in Japan, I'll be happy to do business with Japan."
