This article is headlined, "Stalin's last army - hordes of gigantic crabs on their way to invade Europe". I found the story linked on Neil Gaiman's blog and I felt it was the sort of news that should be posted everywhere, in case you're Norwegian and you want to keep all your fingers. Or if you're a Jerry Bruckheimer/Michael Bay production in need of a concept. I suggest a combat strategy involving forks, bibs, and melted butter.

The weirdest part of this is the fact that this is a result of "a Stalinist era scheme to provide food for the populations in the north-western Soviet Union". I guess he eventually gave up and let the people starve to death. Little did he know that if he'd just waited until the 1990s, the crab population would explode and invade Norway, leaving environmental devastation and tasty eatin' in their wake. No word on how this will affect the imitation crab industry...
