Crazy Cleaner Shrimp(pics)

I was looking at my tank today and saw something kinda weird. I had always heard that coral banded shrimp would eat bristleworms. Well, i guess my cleaner likes them too. He was eating one that was about 2.5 to 3 in. long and ate the whole thing. He broke it up into little pieces and ate them individually. It took about 20 min. Heres the pic.
