Step Six: Cleansing of specimen
"Sort of looks like a lobster."
Evidently scorpions sink. So does mustard. If you slosh "mustardy" scorpion around a cup of water you'll only succeed in making it more mustardy. <sigh!>

The scorpion barely moved. I began to doubt my alcoholic ability to drive a scorpion mad. The experiment seemed doomed to failure.
