…as opposed to those jumbo shrimp who are always causing trouble. That’s just the way life is on the mean streets of Krill Corner.

The question comes to mind: is it absolutely positive about that?

Pond grass – is that another way of saying surf ‘n turf?

If this is ‘staying away from trouble’, I wonder how ‘being in trouble’ looks like?

It stays away from trouble now, but when it was young it tried all kinds of crazy things, just for the halibut.

Might be staying away from trouble but it’s certainly not staying away from the menu…

I don’t think being in a dish about to be eaten is a successful example of staying away from trouble.

♫ Steppin’ softly in a danger zone
No weapon in my hand
It’s just this brain, designed by man
It’s got me in trouble again
In trouble again ♫

The fate of these pond grass shrimp troubles me deeply.

Google translated that English line into chinese as “池草虾不去麻烦了”, which they then translated back to English as “Do not trouble shrimp pond”, which makes more sense.

Ah, this one has a cultural context behind it.

First three characters is “bei-fong-tong”, or “sheltered cove” (where a fishing boat can hide from a storm). It’s also a particular style of seafood.

Shrimp is just shrimp. 🙂
