Let Smokepurpp Bless Yo Trap At House Of Blues, Make A Memory With Preoccupations At Club Dada And Discuss Race AndThe #TimesUp Movement At The Wild Detectives.
Sometimes the morning commute can just ruin your day. Stop-and-go traffic, complete stand stills or crowded public transit is enough to make anyone crabby. Especially if the seats on subway are being taken by crabs, that aren’t afraid of using their claws, if it means protecting their seat.
Kristina Hughes was quick to whip out her phone and capture video of the crustaceans making their morning commute on Line 1 of the Toronto Subway System recently. The Facebook post quickly began to garner attention as she kept her followers updated with the crabs voyage. A particular highlight was a lady that sat down, but only for a brief moment, before letting out a little scream and walking away.
She obviously didn’t have as thick of an exoskeleton as the crabs did because she came back furious. After yelling at the man she assumed had brought the crabs on the subway, she began throwing them off their seats and across the subway car. One subway rider was quick to yell “Crab assault” and stand up for the sea critters. These crabs were just trying to get to work, so they can make a living and support their crab kids through crab college. As a society we must work to make it a safe place for everyone no matter the amount of legs or claws you have.
You probably don’t have to worry about being pinched by crabs on your way to work. And you also don’t need to shell out the big bucks to have a great time in Dallas tonight, as you can see from the events listed below. — Jacob Besser
