Read the article!

Shrimp are actually transexuals. They all start out as males then change to females to lay eggs!!!

(I wonder if they go through a drag phase before they change??? Maybe that's why they call the boats shrimp draggers???)

Some people may not accept that type of change!!

No Shrimp today! I went to Brunswick looking for shrimp trucks today but there none there! The weekend storm must have kept the boats in. DB bought some for $1.00 a pound on Saturday. I'll have to check again in a day or two.
