“What do you call a Chinese crab?"/"A crust-asian.”

The word “crustacean” has been the subject of a pun:

Wikipedia: Crustacean
Crustaceans (Crustacea /krʌˈsteɪʃə/) form a very large group of arthropods which includes such familiar animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimp, krill, woodlice and barnacles. The crustacean group is usually treated as a subphylum, and thanks to recent molecular studies it is now well accepted that the crustacean group is paraphyletic, and comprises all animals in the Pancrustacea clade other than hexapods. In other words, some crustaceans are more closely related to insects and other hexapods than they are to certain other crustaceans.
