Crabs Gone The Way Of The Dodo?

Thanks to the ever-popular Brazilian bikini wax, crabs (public lice) are quite possibly the next critters to make it to the endangered species list.

The Brazilian wax removes most or all of the hair from a woman’s, um, southern region. Since crabs need hair to survive, pubic enemy number one has nowhere to go.

The crabs’ possible endangerment came about during a study at a Dutch museum, where scientists could not find anyone to donate a single louse. Scientists now fear for the insect’s future, and blame the world's lack of short-n-curlies.

On the bright side (not that there’s a dark side if you ask... anybody), it looks like Paris Hilton may have found her next charitable cause.
