Poor Lobster

This poor thing managed to survive for probably 100+ years until this idiot murdered him.

WHY do people have to murder noble creatures when they can purchase one in any store?

I'm sorry it didn't turn HIM into lobster food....

What is the difference between the one he caught and one that somebody else caught and is being sold in a store?

I'd rather hunt one down myself and kill it, cheaper, and more self reliant. Not like the pansies that simply order it off the menu and have no idea or care where their food comes from. I mine my own bitumen for dessert.

We could share? I would buy desert... lol

A few years back I was in Boston, and purchased 13 Lobsters @ 3.99 a lb. They packed them perfectly, so I could bring them back on the airplane.
After doing this, it's somewhat annoying to see how high the prices are for 'Lobster' in the grocery stores...I believe the lowest price I have ever seen is 8.99 a lb, and that was the sale price... Just a little Fyi...

Have a great day HH...:)

I've always wanted to catch my own as well, throw it on an open fire-pit, and eat it! Kinda like in 'Blue Lagoon' lol...

Have a great day NR...:0

A lobster that big would likely be so old that the mercury and lead build up would probably set off metal detectors. My dads friend who lived in Rhode Island and set lobster traps swore on the bible that lobster do not taste good when they reach above a certain size. He always told us that the really old ones have accumulated to much stuff in them and it gives them off-tastes.

Oh, yeah, you can't. He's long since become part of the Earth, after having been bear shit for a while.
