Top definition
to move backwards away from a perceived threat, as a crawdad does. When a crawdad is escaping, it moves quickly backward, despite any obstacles it may have to knock down or go around in its path. It also raises its pincers to pinch and defend itself against its attacker. Usually, crawdadding ends when the crawdad reaches its hole. The crawdad will then hide in its hole until it feels safe to come out again.
The White House Press Secretary is an expert at crawdadding when the First Family embarrasses itself or puts itself in an awkward position.
