An act of true shellfishness in Roland Park
Crab capers in Baltimore.
Installed last week as part of the city's Crabtown Project public art display and fund-raiser, the hulking fiberglass crustacean perched in front of Eddie's of Roland Park grocery store was reported missing yesterday.

"We think it may have been abducted at mallet-point," said Steve Kuehn, the general manager of the high-end market.

The 75-pound orange crab, with a clawspan of 5 1/2 feet, was wearing a painted-on garment decorated as a white chef's jacket with a Maryland flag on the back.

It was wearing a chef's hat and holding tongs and a whisk in its claws.

    I read it was back this morning. All I can picture is that Simpsons episode where Bart persuades himself to cut the head off the Jebediah Springfield. "Aww man, that's just cloud talk!"

    It's only slightly less shellfish than what happened to mine. A huge glass mosaic, my crab was lifted out of its base and smashed on the ground. Lovely, eh? Makes you want to be among humanity.
