Are those lobster creatures?


Yeh, like 'em?

When it was cold here a few days ago I started having dreams about the last onesy I had when I was a very young kiddo, a onesie where the feet pads were made of something like textured plastic.

I remember a onesie I had that was different shades of blue without lobsters or anything else printed on .

Looked for onesies for adult critters and found the above photo .

I find the idea of lobsters sheathing human feet to be a rather interesting idea and with a slightly different vibe than, say, the slippers that are meant to resemble bunny rabbits or puppies or other cute mammals .

But ...

Your "lobster creatures" comment sparked a memory of William S. Burroughs' distinctive voice, specifically his "The Last Words of Hassan Sabbah" ....

Please listen for the references to "crab men" and "crab people" in the YouTube link I've provided below and you'll hear what I mean ....

One of my favourite lines from this ...

... all of you all ... all ... all green people, crab people, blue heavy-metal people,
compliments of Mr. Burroughs for the heavy-metal gimmick ...

Im listening to the audio clip now. Pretty interesting stuff. Hard to grasp the meaning. I do love the way he says "Crrrrab Men!"

I guess this might be an edited-down version because i don't think that one line I quoted is in there.

Found the transcription of it:
