    My first thought on seeing the picture was, “why is that crazy lady adding shrimp to a strawberry milkshake?”

      Ha ha! That’s just slightly more disgusting as what is really happening in this photo!

    Yeah let me just go buy some shrimp so I can put them in a blender with jello. I’m legitimately surprised they don’t skip the lemon juice and just go for lemon-flavored gelatine.

      I know, sounds like a good idea, right? Not a waste of money AT ALL!
