Prolagus commented on the word red crab
In Italian, prendere un granchio (to catch a crab) is the equivalent of "to pull a boner".

And now we have red crabs everywhere.

Pulling a boner means making a mistake.
Really? I never heard that before.

Catch a crab has another meaning in rowing sports--to get your oar stuck in the water or to miss the water altogether.
