Hey Downeasters, put down the clam hoe, take off your boots, and check out this animated video about a elusive purple clam and a digger out for revenge!  Yup, this clammer is missing a finger, and there's a reason why!

In the video, you find an old time clam digger out on the flats for a day's work, when suddenly he digs up an old friend from the past.  A purple clam that once had bit off his finger!  Will the purple clam make it into the digger's basket this time?  Or, will he save his buddies and teach this the old timer a lesson once again? You'll have to watch to find out!

This very well done video features animation by Adam Fisher of Portland, Oregon, and a great song titled " The Ballad of the Purple Clam" by Brian Kavanagh.
