4) Commas

3) Apostrophes

2) Sea otters, floating on their backs, hunching up to open a mollusk, or, when the the sharp little hook that once attached the Cashew nut to the base of its apple is still there, fellating themselves

You need to find a better source of shrimp.

Better than underneath the Union Street Bridge on the Gowanus Canal?

@Dave Bry Well, that at least explains it, and gets you bonus points for urban foraging (you nut job).

@hockeymom it's also a biological process for yeast reproduction.

@hockeymom I was a little hesitant to wiki that at work, but it's totally fine and surprisingly detailed.

When still attached to the cashew fruit, they look like a portly banana slug with an enormous mandible.
