As if the spiny hermit crab's shell wasn't bad enough, it has gone and used a worn-out doll's head for its home.

The only saving grace here is that it's a doll's head and not a real skull.

Well, this would explain a lot.

Starting with why the rubber gloves folks at this workplace have been sharing for months stink of mildew.
