After revelations that the sexual transmitted disease Gonorrhea has been spreading around Leeds, video footage has emerged of a cast of crabs being let loose on the metro underground in Newcastle.
Although the comparisons by name are quite a sight for sore eyes, by nature the circumstances are extraordinarily different.
An unknown camera-person filmed the events in the northern subway, showing around 20 of the sea creatures scuttling around the platform and onto the train.
During the 30-second-long video, first uploaded by Newcastle Uncovered, onlookers can be seen kicking the creatures in opposite directions.
According to local reports the incident occurred after a passenger was carrying the crustaceans in a plastic bag when it split open, walking away from the animals as they spread across the carriage.
There is a happy ending for the creatures as they have been taken to the Blue Reef Aquarium in Tynemouth, where they are understood to be settling into their new home.
