I found what appears to be a crab claw when I was out walking today and I am baffled

@Laser I came home and started googling "freshwater crab????" and "crab Illinois???" and the answer is no

@Pixley @Laser maybe a bird either flew a long distance with it or stole it from garbage. I occasionally find fish skeletons in my gutters.

@Cyborgneticz my husband's theory is that someone was just walking around snacking on crab on the trail

@Dayglochainsaw @Cyborgneticz we get pelicans passing through once in a while, maybe one of them was like, "oh my god I've had this stuck in my bill for a thousand miles, this is so embarrassing"

A bit gross 

@Pixley reminds me of that time my mom found an ear on the sidewalk

A bit gross 

@kiosk what....kind of ear

A bit gross 

@Pixley this was also my reaction, and my mind was buzzing with the potential ways an ear might end up on the sidewalk, but she insisted it wasn't a big deal

A bit gross 

@Pixley she said "oh probably an accident" and just. Mother. What fucking kind of accident leaves an ear, but only an ear, on the sidewalk. Like that has to be a surgically precise kind of accident

A bit gross 

@kiosk this is astonishing and it is killing me that I'll never have closure on it

A bit gross 

@Pixley My mom literally lives in a David Lynch movie yet insists it's not a big deal

@Pixley Is it fresh? Or I mean, not cooked anyway

@Pixley so you’ve chosen to live with the mystery

@thomas I love wondering things! We get to do it so seldom these days

@Pixley in this information obsessed world, let’s take a little joy in this crab claw

@Pixley my guess would be a local raccoon pulled it from someone's trash can

@Pixley for a while i kept finding chicken bones under the bush near my front door and im pretty sure that was why

@douglasfur some say you can hear him clacking late at night
