That was hilarious and strange.

I have to admit when I saw Crab Vending Machine, I thought it was selling Tommy Lee Spit.

I think if you just walk into a room where Tommy Lee has been, you could get a serious case of crabs.

You should do a poll and get the most creative answer!

Heff said...

I've always wanted to have a pissed off crab in my pants.

diane said...

Nothing today will be as funny as that. Thanks Drolly.

I saw that on TV before it hit Colbert and I thought, "Ohnotheydidn't!'

Who is doing the focus testing on this crab, er, I mean CRAP?

"Today ladies and gentlemen, we are going to be introducing you to a new product called The Crab Vending Machine. But before we begin, I want to thank those participants who have joined us again today to offer their valuable insights. Your feedback on the Win-a-Live-Goldfish slot machines was excellent and we are looking forward to expanding our market share in Vegas, Monte Carlo, on cruise ships and at various EuroDisney locations." - G

I read about these somewhere. At least the machines are getting press. Hahaha. He definitely did solve that not-a-problem.

Haute World said...

Ha! That was too funny, especially the thing about the p*ssed of crabs waking up in the subway. Can't say I ever had the urge to consume seafood on the go, but hey, that's just me. And considering the Japanese also sell used panties in vending machines, I say crabs are probably not nearly as strange...

Shelley said...

hahaha! too funny! I love Colbert <3

Brandi said...

Is this awesome or disturbing...the verdict is still out.

BALLET NEWS said...

Loved this. Curiously strange ! Have a wonderful weekend

Alisa said...

Shouldn't that be illegal? Love Colbert!

Isabel said...

Oh, Drollgirl, your titles always lure me in! I have to say this wasn't what I was expecting, ha ha!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Stay away from crabs!

Jude said...

Hahaha! I did NOT expect this to be *literal*! Hahaha! I was also impressed by the mention of the vending machine vending machine. :)

Christina In Wonderland said...

Now if only they'd sell hot celebrities in vending machines, the world would be a decent place. :)

Melanie's Randomness said...

WOW I thought it was weird when I saw a Live Bait machine but this is ridicolous. I hope whoever invented it gets a crab & puts it in his pocket & then it bites him you know where because this is too stupid! Funny as hell tho!! =P

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Yes I tweeted about this last week I think! So crazy!

Kathryn said...

I had heard of this - they have a number you can can if you get a dead crab that will "guarantee" replacement with a fresh crab it you call the number - but WTF do you do with the dead crab? Hold on to it and tote it around until you can arrange and exchange? Dump it in the nearest trash receptacle where it will be invested vermin and virus?

I guess they have lot of strange vending machines in Japan, but a gal I used to work with said they even have something stranger than this in vending machines at an airport...used women's panties.

Emma said...

WTF is right.....hilarious & disturbing all at once! Have a great weekend Drollgirl x

Pretty Little World said...

This bit was hilarious, but I feel SO bad for those little crabs! I realize they're like the bugs of the sea, but still - I can't imagine spending part of your life in a vending machine, only to be taken somewhere and thrown in a pot of boiling water is the best life to have :(

Andhari said...

Poor crabs! Should there be a demonstration/petition by animal right group or something? haha

vint junky said...

Hilarious! Must show my little girl, she's petrified of them!

Whaaat? I've got to get my kicks somehow ;)

Farah said...

Crap I still can't open it! :(

SabinePsynopsis said...

How did Vint Junky open it. Maybe the Irish have special rights... It doesn't work for me (link neither), but I bet it was something really MEAN and funny.

Char said...

lOL i have to admit i was thinking the sexually transmitted kind, not the cooking kind

Kristina P. said...

This explains so much about Paris Hilton and her unfortunate crab experiences.

Katie said...

I hadn't heard of this! How crazy.

wahaha. there was a slight dip in the momentum in the middle but it ended just like how it should.
