Why the Lord called me to be CRABMEAT 

"You see, mon bien, the 'Crab' moniker creates a whole Persona to hide my shy self behind. The word 'persona,' in fact, comes from the ancient Greek stage, where actors wore big masks with built-in megaphones, so that they spoke through (per) a ‘sonic enhancer' while hiding behind their masque.
