From their faces? My answer would be, "One of them?"

we are not supposed to source items in this thread. The point was to show what a monster this old harpy is.

It's rare for me to go from neutral to hating someone in two sentences. Congrats to this person.

Quote:
Many years ago, my brother-in-law Rob ran a pub/guest house in deepest Cornwall, England. It was a gorgeous place with 15th-century foundations, and a structure mainly dating to the 16th/17th Century. The beer was good, the floors were wonky and the food was pretty fresh. Like the pub, Rob was “proppur” Cornish, naturally spoke like a pirate and didn’t suffer fools gladly. Rob was happy to put up with the “emmets” (tourists) in summer to have sufficient to survive through winter, and to encourage custom at his inn he ran a small menu made from fresh, local ingredients.

One day about 10am a group of tourists arrived looking for refreshment. They ordered drinks and asked if there was something to eat. My mother, who was helping out, patiently explained that the kitchen was in the middle of prep for lunch but could rustle up some crab sandwiches or a decent pasty, although the pasty would be cooked from frozen.

The mention of crab began the cross questioning: was it local? Was it freshly cooked? Was it really fresh? Because (of course) all the party had sensitive stomachs.

As it so happened, any crab would be particularly fresh, because a local fisherman had just dropped off a bongo (a large drum) of crab about 15 minutes before the group had arrived and the first ones were already in the pot. One particular gentleman was dismissive of any claims of it being fresh, asserting that at best it would be the “usual frozen trash,” and said he would “do” the landlord for false advertising. Diplomatically, my mother went out the back to get Rob, who was already wondering who was creating the fuss. Rob told her to go back and say he would be out in a moment. True to his word, Rob arrived very swiftly with a drying cloth over one arm to lend a professional appearance. He asked what the problem was and the know-it-all, claiming he knew all about the tricks of the trade, started to give Rob a lecture.

Waiting patiently, Rob was finally able to say, “Is ‘is fresh enough fur ‘ee?” and pulled a 9″ cock crab from under the towel and placed it on the table, which caused a lady to give a little scream. Know-all said, “Don’t worry, it’s only plastic” and poked the beast with one finger.

The crab, understandably annoyed, took umbrage and snapped its claws onto a handbag and refused to let go. The tourists fled, one coming back after an hour to get the handbag, which Rob eventually had eventually freed from the claws. Everybody left at the pub was very happy, except for the crab, which made a delightful salad for the staff.

I marvel at the leaps of logic required to assume that the artist would do it for free but not on commission.
