This unique, one of a kind, instrument has clawed it's way into the hearts and minds of WUvians around the world.

NOTE: The use of "unique, one of a kind" has been sanctioned by multiple news casters, so there!

How sure are we that it's not a claw from a Fiddler Crab?

I think that Peter Schikele would be proud to have that in his orchestra of underrated instruments.

I play violin, but I am allergic to shellfish. Playing such a thing would be an itchy proposition.
