An innocent bystander is enjoying a day at the beach without a care in the world. Suddenly, you feel searing pain as you scream in great pain and agony, sometimes even [[{{Screams Like A Little Girl}} screaming like a little girl]]. You then discover that a crab pinched you either on the finger, [[{{Agony Of The Feet}} foot]], [[{{Groin Attack}} groin]], or any other body part.

Oftentimes when you're at a beach or river or any body of water, you get pinched by a crab, a lobster, or any kind of pincered crustacean. This also happens often in {{Real Life}}... God forbid.
