With Friends Like These, Who Needs Anemones?
I clipped this article from a newspaper a little while ago. It reads:
London: Divers undertaking routine maintenance work in a British harbour discovered a giant lobster standing guard over a barnacle-encrusted watch. The 60 centimetre lobster, which is thought to be more than 30 years old, was spotted by members of a diving club in Blyth Harbour, Northumberland.Moral: It doesn't matter how carefully you look after the thing you love most, you probably won't be able to stop some bastard from taking it away from you. And time still marches on.
On closer inspection they were amazed to find that the ancient crustacean appeared to be guarding a wristwatch. On their return to the surface the divers discovered that the watch - a Citizen Pulsar believed to have been underwater for at least three years - was still telling the time accurately to within a few seconds.
