OMG. They're breeding super crabs and making them wild.
What are the Shampoo Resistant crabs, and how are they different?
When we first launched our business, we hired on “Dave”, a promising dropout from NYU who had so much wisdom we couldn’t imagine how he couldn’t cover his tuition payments, especially considering he was on the G.I. Bill. He’s been our resident expert in Phthirus Pubis Husbandry, and he took it upon himself to spend his spare time developing a strain of Shampoo resistant parasites. Basically he feeds the batches small amounts of Permethrin (the poison that kills them) and re-breeds the survivors. Those that have come out the tail end of the breeding process are quite different in shape and color, but most importantly, they have a much greater resistance to treatment. They can still be killed, but if you don’t completely soak even one of them, they’ll come back stronger than ever, and they’ll do it over and over again.
Isn’t the breeding of Super Crabs morally irresponsible?
No. It’s basically fine. We’ve been wronged, so doing wrong in kind is always justified. Just be thankful the option exists for you. You’re welcome.
