Half and Half 

Springer is different from the other crabs. It must have been hard in crab-school, growing up as ze did of two minds and two bodies as well. You see, due to a rare mitotic errordifference, Springer is half male and half female. Literally. Split down the middle. One day ze wants to mate with females, the next ze wants to eat them as competitors. I wonder how long it will be until the wingnuts organize a boycott of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science for promoting Springer's Deviant Lifestyle?
