New research has found that lobsters do indeed feel pain! Well that sucks!

New research has found some unsettling info about whether lobsters and crabs feel pain.

Apparently, the new consensus is yes, yes they do. And that's just awful.

Scientists have being working on finding solid evidence that crabs, lobsters, octopuses (octopi?) and other invertebrates feel pain.

"Sometimes I can get a little crabby."

A restaurant? Was she at the beach? We must know!!

Bikini Waxing Is Making Crabs Go Extinct!

No, we don't mean Dungeness.

New research has found that the trend of nether region deforestation, particularly bikini waxing, has made crabs, AKA pubic lice, nearly extinct!

Ian F. Burgess, a Cambridge medical entomologist explains:

"Pubic grooming has led to a severe depletion of crab louse populations. Add to that other aspects of body hair depilation, and you can see an environmental disaster in the making for this species."

That means their natural habitat of the hairy crotchal region is being destroyed and they have no place to live and procreate!

Yay!

Furthermore, the largest sexual health clinic in Australia reports that no cases of crabs have been found in women since 2008, and for men, cases have dropped about 80%.

So the next time your bikini wax appointment rolls around, go forth with a smile knowing that you're doing your part to rid the world of those nasty bloodsuckers!
