The nude woman turns toward him.  She's the spitting image of Amber's mother, except for the chelipeds she has in place of hands.  She hisses, "Equity!" and takes a wobbly step toward him, pincers clacking.

-- Charles Stross, in his science fiction novel Accelerando (2005) about the impending technological singularity


When I read this paragraph in Accelerando, I stopped to wonder whether that was the weirdest paragraph ever that still fit within the story line.
