Not since SpongeBob SquarePants has a creature living in the water captivated you so much.

The crab in this video sure looks like it is lifting a paint brush the way you always envision yourself lifting weights if you would just get off your lazy duff and go to the gym.

Even more impressive is the fact he doesn't need a spotter, which means all the female crabs watching him are really turned on by his brute strength.

We think it's pretty impressive, although it's slightly ironic that a crab could get so hard, considering the whole "soft-shell crab" thing going on that people seem to really like.

Of course, he's probably not a crustacean you want to meet in a dark alley. Instead of "You're dead meat," you know he means business when he threatens you with, "You're crab meat."

Now, we're afraid he's bulking up so he can take us down for making too many lame jokes.
