Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

iwasa misaki

… and I just happen to HAVE some butter, Miss Misaki!

Corphish (in Japanese: ヘイガニ  “Heigani”) is a Water-type Pokémon. Corphish evolves into Crawdaunt (in Japanese: シザリガー  “Shizariger”) starting at level 30. Where it becomes a WATER & DARK dual- type. Corphish is basically a “crawfish” or “crayfish”. When Corphic evolves into Crawdaunt, it is a much larger, daunting crawfish. Crawdaunt may also be some type of lobster, as it certainly looks enough one.

One of the nonsensical or non-science-i-cal aspects about Pokémon is that Water-types do not appear to be confined to either freshwater or saltwater environments. If Corphish is a freshwater crayfish, it should not evolve into a salt-water lobster. These and other Water-type Pokémon may be caught in either environment apparently – as long as there is a water body — sometime coastal, but then sometimes inland.

I named one Corphish/Crawdaunt the name “Crawdaddy” which is another name for fereshwater crayfish. Crawdaddy was also the name of the 1970s counter-culture magazine, which featured articles on rock music and popular culture. If you love classic rock, you should see if your library has old copies of Crawdaddy.

The magazine was a lot like “RollingStone”, at least before RollingStone magazine became musically irrelevant and unreadable by the 1990s, … but I digress once again. Kids, it is OK to NOT CARE a lobster shit what RollingStone says. It sucks — but not like in the way you eat a crawdad.

I think that she is the best singer in AKB48, and probably the least “shellfish”.

These photos of Iwasa Misaki (oh … Wasamin … my oshimen … Denny faints … THUD) were taken for her participation in the most recent AKB48 “Janken” tournament. Participants in the tournament always dress in costume. Wasamin came to the event dressed as some type of crustacean. I think she might actually be a shrimp however, not a crayfish. I don’t care – she could be a krill, it is close enough to crawfish for me.  People put butter all over their crayfish and then suck out all the wonderful juice … er .. not that I would ever do that to Wasamin …and I am obviously meandering again.

Some people like to suck the head — the New Orleans method:

I have use the name “Scampi”, after the shrimp dish, but arguably that might be better for the shrimp-like Pokémon Clauncher.

I have also used the name “Prawn Star” because shrimp are prawns, and it sounds like “Porn Star” and Crawdaunt has a yellow star on its head for some reason … or is that just a star-shaped tab of butter?

Other names:

“Pinchy” after the Simpsons episode where Homer adopts a lobster.

“Robert Cray” after the blues guitarist.

“CrayBoy” as word play on the men’s magazine that … um … er … never mind.

“Cray Lola” for a female, word play based on the name for the famous crayon maker.

Of course you can think of other names which have to do with eating southern cooked crawfish. Such names as “Cajun”, “Louisiana”, “Gumbo” , “Jambalaya”,  “Cayenne” “Red Bayou, etc. come to mind.

What is the name for your suckable crustacean? Please comment!

References: As always, I get a lot of my basic information from the Bulbapedia and Serebii websites. The rest of it is always just a hazy memory of pale ale and cheesecake.

Starlight: Have not smoked a crawdad since 1979.

  2. Sorry Readers: I wanted the Misaki photo to be the lead graphic in the Reader.

    I can’t find an answer to this in WordPress help. I did not want the YouTube video to be the cover graphic in the Reader. They used to let you make a particular image the graphic which is seen on the (your) Reader. Why is it if you have any YouTube video in your post at all, it has to be the image in the Reader preview?

    Sorry if it is a stupid question. I have noticed that whenever WordPress makes a change, it is always a change for the worst.
    (Might as well stay home and get drunk.)

    Prawn Star is a good name. I also liked the “shell fish” caption. She is very cute, but I wouldn’t want to get intimate with her as I might catch crabs.
