It's worth noting that in the comments section of the local news source, a poster has ID'd and posted the addy for the original photo

ETA: original pic sans crab

TPTB obviously had someone Photoshop out the Crab!

That's my story and I wont bother defending it because frankly I don't believe it myself.

As bogus as this SEEMS, I'm not gonna say it's a closed case...

Either the crab is photoshopped in, or photoshopped out - but if you look at the photo without the crab - there is a huge section where the crab 'should be' that truly looks photoshopped to me... The entire area around the crab in the photo without the crab is one color, no texture, and very out of place...

I made a comparison of the two...




IMO? Looks like someone at Bing needs to brush up on their Shotophopping skills.

How's THIS?

Looks like we either get a near-live feed from Bing, or they're still trying to tighten the image up. Glad I caught it when I did.

This is the Latest at Bing - it's changed in the last 15 minutes.




OP: I think you should edit your title; perhaps append "CLEAR COVERUP" to the end.

I think the bigger question is "Can mankind build a pot big enough to boil this demigod crab? Can mankind find a dish big enough to hold the melted butter? " I think not.

Full comparison - I can attest that the latter two images are both less than an hour old.

I feel like everyone saw this, wrote it off as a hoax, and walked away... I'd like to see some follow up comments after the above comparisons...

I also think it should get pulled out of the 'Jokes Puns & Pranks' forum until further 'debunked'... Mods?

With digital imaging, and the ability to EDIT said imagry; it really does bend ones mind as to what could be considered reality, and fantasy.

Rather interesting how the image has changed three times within an hour tho, thanks to those pointing out such things.

On a side note... I'm going Long on Melted butter futures, and over-sized pots!

Great Scott!


You're right, We need to get people on this straight away. Somebody get on the horn to NASA, Mitsubishi or Hyundai heavy industry.

I'll run up to Baltimore for some Old Bay and beer.

Lol I don't know who's being sarcastic at this point and who isn't; pretty hilarious topic regardless of it's validity.

I still think the clear image editing on Bing's part is a pretty evident indicator that this may have been legit...

I say we take one of those radiotelescope dishes and line it with aluminum foil (how perfect) and toss tha bugger in there, point it at the Sun and have solar cooked crab.
Just need a butter cannon to lob some butter on it.

Can't really see on my ipad but is it possible to zoom in on the cars parked to see if they are the same on each picture as the sands at the entrance to harbour will change day to day after weather etc and look different . Maybe they were taken on different days.

I do wish I had taken a closer-up of the second picture, but as I mentioned it was only in place for less than an hour. I took a screenshot of my Bing session and by the time I could post my comparison photo and refresh the page at Bing, it had changed.

I went through the same thought process myself; and by my assessment it looks like the only thing that changed was the sand's layout... But not naturally.

As you say - if these images were taken on different days, then it would only make sense that there would be changes to the sand - but I don't see those changes; as a matter of fact - if you look at the sand touching the 'western-most' corner of the dock in question - you see that it has not changed at all between the second and third picture, but everything south-southwest of the dock ( where the crab should be ) changed dramatically...

I'd be Happy to outline some defining 'marks' in the sand that display this...

To me though, the second picture is a CLEAR photoshopping - There's almost solid lines around the whole 'blob' of darker sand. Looks to me like someone did a 30-second blurring of the whole area after sampling the eastern side of the dock, in an attempt to push a replacement quickly.

And I SERIOUSLY think that this is in the wrong forum...

I'm pushing hard because I literally watched the change happen before my eyes...

Monster crab invaders and land of the lost aside - I saw what I saw and now the thread is 'dead' because it's a 'hoax'... I would beg to differ, greatly.
