In the past few weeks, there have been a number of journalistic…ummm….blunders shall we say?

John Stamos found “true love” in Ocean City…but what SPICE (Hint: the spice preferred by MOST crab houses and seafood restaurants) was it that John Stamos was eating? Reprinted off the Baltimore Sun website:

John Stamos finds ‘true love’ in Ocean City

Uncle Jesse from ‘Full House’ posts crab feast photo on Instagram

July 28, 2014|By Colin Campbell | The Baltimore Sun

Move over Aunt Becky. Uncle Jesse found “true love” in Ocean City this weekend.

John Stamos, who played the lovable goofball uncle to the infant Olsen twins in “Full House” and is promoting his new rom-com, “My Man is a Loser,” posted a picture of a mountain of hard-shell crabs to Instagram on Sunday. The caption: “Found true love in Ocean City MD.”

Stamos, who also plays guitar and drums, was in the area performing with The Beach Boys. The band played in New Jersey on Saturday night and Delaware on Sunday, and has shows in Lancaster, Pa., on Monday and Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday, according to its website.

In his new film, Stamos, 50, plays a suave, Will-Smith-in-“Hitch”-type playboy who tries to teach his two married friends how to win back their bored wives. It premiered in theaters Friday, before Stamos hit the beach for some of Maryland’s famous, Old Bay-coated crustaceans.

The Crab Bag, at 130th Street and Coastal Highway, served up the crab dinner to Stamos. The restaurant was voted “best crabs” in Ocean City in The Sun’s “Best of OC” poll in May.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — She may be queen of the Windy City, but she still knows how to eat like a Baltimorean.

Oprah Winfrey, a former anchor here at WJZ-TV, dined at Captain James Landing Wednesday.

The billionaire media mogul posted a picture on Instagram with longtime partner Stedman Graham, smiling and enjoying crabs.

“Crab feast in Baltimore! #CaptainJames,” read the caption.

Winfrey became an anchor here at WJZ-TV in 1976 and later went on to co-host the local talk show “People Are Talking” with Richard Sher.

In 1984, she moved to Chicago to host her own morning talk show.

J.O. Spice would just like to point out that both Captain James and The Crab Bag are customers of J.O….while we believe wholeheartedly that competition makes the world go round and round…we do like to give credit where credit is due. What spice is on the fries down in Ocean City? It’s not J.O. and we won’t be happy if you say it is because it’s a Flat. Out. Lie.

This world is big enough for Coke & Pepsi, for tissues & Kleenex, for Ghirardelli & Hershey’s, for J.O. & Old Bay. But just like all of us, we’d just like to be given some credit that we are here and we are working hard to stay! A small business in the midst of big…now that’s cause for celebration.

We’ve been around since 1945, and just want to be recognized for hard work, dedication to our customers and for contributing to great memories made at crab feasts, dinners, reunions, weddings and so much more! We’re proud to be on your table and that table is big enough for the Old Bay can and the J.O. Spice bucket!

Enjoy your crab feasts,

🙂 Pamela
