Attack of the killer lobster
Picture says it all.
Now the challenge is finding a big enough pot, and enough butter.

They should just let it go, for chrissakes. Why do we have this compulsion to catch and murder every creature we see?
It's the whole Allan Quatermain the Great White Hunter thing.

they should let it go because large lobster tastes like toe jam.
I've eaten lobster about that big, and it wasn't bad at all. That thing is probably about 30 years old.
Do lobsters accumulate toxins?

o rly? hmm, dont think i had one over 10 lbs. maybe it's an old fish tale.
"I understand it was given a new home in an aquarium."
Great. We don't kill it, but we condemn it to a life in a tiny little tank. And don't say, "Oh, it's only a lobster".
Animals in cages make me cry.

I think he's putting it in a cage because the damned thing went after him when it was in the wild. The whole "Born free, live free" thing is great until the particular free thing decides it wants a chunk of you. Then you should either eat it or stick it in a cage where you can keep an eye on it. Me, I'd have still eaten it, but he obviously felt that it should keep living. Or he couldn't find a big enough pot.

I'm betting pot, or taste issues.
I didn't know bigger tasted worse. I'd definitely have tried to eat it. That's a lot of lobster.
> Dow also claims that large lobsters taste as good as small ones "until you get to 5 to 7 pounds. Then the meat gets kind of stringy."
> Never eat a cooked lobster with its tail uncurled, as it died before it was cooked.
why would you? i know when all the lobsters I eat died.
Why would you not eat it just because it died before boiling in a pot? Maybe it could be better if it did, but it would still be almsot as good?
You never eat already dead shellfish or crustaceans because they go bad really quickly and you could get food poisoning.
Hmm, I want a big batch of lobster, crab, and scallops. That would be really good.
The food poisoning, btw, isn't your everyday salmonella that your body can usually cope with. You'd get cholera, a disease known for its extreme unpleasantness. Light cases just make you queasy, maybe give you a case of the runs. The real deal makes you die after a couple of days of shitting and puking fire.
