“I have HAD IT with these God-damn headcrabs on this God-damn plane!”
Headcrabs are the most violent type of crab known to man. And women. And your neighbor. And probably that old guy down the street whos name you can never remember. Having headcrabs typically results in becoming a hideous screeching zombie host. Which isn't fun. Trust me on this one. Remember, kids: Knowing is half the battle. The other half is being able to wield a crowbar in a fashion that can easily beat the living fahjeezus out of a headcrab. This article can safely help you to get down with the whole "knowing" part. The thing with the crowbar? Yeah, that's up to you.
Headcrabs are commonly found in the dark. I mean really dark. We're talking the kind of dark that requires you to have a flashlight. The kind of dark that Grues live in. Please do not confuse headcrabs with Grues. See, Grues just eat you alive in horrible pain. Headcrabs jump up and start humping your head like there's no tomorrow. So, really, which is worse? Being eaten? Or having to live with the insult of having been raped on the head by a crab? Here's a hint: the answer isn't "being eaten".
Always get your sex partner checked. You can perform this check by checking the scalp region for a large parasitic alien. If your partner shows signs of a parasitic alien gnawing off their face, bash their head in with a crowbar. Shampoo will not do the trick. Some freelance doctors have also proposed that wearing a fancy suit makes you immune, although this is not known for certain. It is rumored that in addition to fancy suits, one must also be not-quite-human, wear massive amounts of hair gel, or be Dick Cheney, who shoots everything in sight, including head crabs and activist judges. Do NOT wear a white shirt covered in blood or tomato juice as this is one of the headcrab's few turn-ons. Also for those in the Christian beliefs, Jesus WILL NOT cure you of these horrible headcrabs. Nor will holy water, it will only aggravate them into eating your head faster.

There are in fact, actually many, many ways of being cured of headcrabness, one of the more violent ones is to find a rather annoyed Grue and sing Spice Girls to it. This may also cause violent death. Another way to cure headcrabness is to have no brain, as this was the method used by Gordon Frohman to cure himself in Ravenholm (followed up with a medkit, of course!). This can be achieved by listening to the Boring Works Of Neils Bohr for approximately 30 seconds (or, in most cases, less). This is the equivalent of taking a shotgun blast to the face although it is slightly more painful than a shotgun to the face.
- Some say that one could catch a case of the poops in the bathroom; this is typically argued to be false as a crab would clearly die when not with a host. That is WRONG. One can get a case of the headcrabs in a ventilation duct, waste disposal facility, apartment complex, or anywhere typically infested with headcrab zombies, which is normally anywhere Gordon Freeman is likely to be visiting in the Near Future.
- Headcrabs are NOT mammals, although yes, that is hair.
- Powdered headcrab beak is held to be a powerful aphrodisiac, however it is a controlled substance in many jurisdictions.
Poops are a sub-species of the excriment which primarily resides in France. They are most commonly found near Experiences, whose unsuspecting customers they catch after exiting the experience or in the common French restaurant.
