“Dungeness crab implies the existence of Dragoness crab”

The Dungeness crab has nothing to do with the game of Dungeons and Dragons, but there are jokes.

Wikipedia: Dungeness crab
The Dungeness crab (Metacarcinus magister) makes up one of the most important seafood industries along the west coast of North America.  Its typical range extends from Alaska’s Aleutian Islands to Point Conception, near Santa Barbara, California. Dungeness typically grow 6-7 inches at their widest point and inhabit eelgrass beds and sandy bottoms. Its common name comes from the Dungeness Spit in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Washington state, United States, which shelters a shallow bay inhabited by the crabs.

If there’s a Dungeness crab, is there a Dragoness crab?

The existence of the dungeness crab implies the existence of a much more actively-threatening dragoness crab.

Just told my kid “The existence of Dungeness crab implies the existence of Dragoness crab.” They didn’t think it was funny.
My genius is unappreciated.
