    Oh, Goody. Evie was just being a caring
    grandma and a fine human being.

    Pregnant is better than already laid ’em. Good thing the teacher caught her in time.

    I’m surprised. I thought Alix would be remorseful about this.

    notice Holly’s unstated “who sounds rather ticked-off”.

    I hope she doesn’t get fined.. (or worse?) Maybe
    they will be merciful unto her, a sinner (don’t we
    all need grace)
    and return Pinchy back to the lake, maybe,
    never to sin again? :)

    Marine biologists have no authority, it’s the DNR she has to worry about. What sort of trouble will jan get into, she let Alix bring the crawdad home. In WI, at least, that would technically be illegal, as that would be viewed as a potential transplant. Given that the teacher is from NOAA, and given NOAAs track record, I have no doubt that she has already informed the DNR, and will see to it that Jan and Ellie pay for this. Ask any
    deepwater commercial fisherman about NOAA.

    Who says the marine biologist isn’t from the DNR?

    Alright, bring Pinchy back to the lake, so all her children will not have to grow up fatherless (the poor guy).


    Some decades ago we would not have made so much fuss about one crawdad. We called it “The survival of the fittest”!


    To eat her is now out of question since she is a pregnant mother. But if she would not be … I would suggest only a piece of butter and a pinch of salt. No garlic, as someone yesterday recommended.

    I think Alex misses the whole point of this exercise. (And don’t crayfish, etc. lay eggs?)

    Jan is the cartoonist – I think you mean Val or Alix.
