I blinked as I passed the bathrooms ... someone had taken chalk and crossed out “Fins” and “Tails.” A wild scrawl proclaimed “Crawdads” and “Crawmamas.” I laughed and headed for the stairs.

All my life I called them crawfish, not crawdads. If they are crawdads, where are the crawmoms?

If you wanna be a hardcore crawdad catcher, there’s no room to sympathize with all the widowed crawmom’s.

Urban Dictionary
A female crayfish. Illegal to harvest, since they are “our future” of crayfish stock, just like female lobsters.
I hear that soon they’re gonna start mandating that fishermen clip a V-notch in crawmom’s tails to distinguish them from crawdads, just as they have to do with lobsters.
