PORCELAIN CRABS FROM CHILE
Porcelanids are decapod (with 10 legs) crustaceans in the widespread family Porcellanidae, which superficially resemble true crabs. They have flattened bodies as an adaptation for living in rock crevices. They are delicate, readily losing limbs when attacked, and use their large claws for maintaining territories.

Your dad got high as balls before you did and he’s got the hydroponic gardening skills to prove it.
He rolled snow-cones of kush and had fifty gallon lungs that could rip a joint in a single hit.
So hipsters, next time you’re inhaling some sweet and legal, remember this…
You have your dad to thank and if you’re nice he might just teach you the ways of his green thumb.
