Does anybody remember Just So Stories, by Rudyard Kipling? I forget the name 
of the particular story, but it had to do with a crab named Pau Amma, and 
tells the story of how this crab played with the tides until men showed up 
to stop him. I won't retell the story here since I don't remember exactly 
how it went, but as I recall, one of the men wielded a wavy-bladed knife 
called a "kris". Has this pun been noted yet?
