Maybe all these different colored lobsters are Lanterns in disguise

Please excuse the ignorance, but can someone please clarify the instructions on adding an image to a post? The FAQ says to enter a URL....does the image need to be uploaded to a website first? How do you add an image that's in a folder?

As long as the color variations don't make them boil proof.

Meh, as long as they all taste the same....

I run a small academy for lobsters like this one. We stress tough love, daily chores and the like.

Somebody went under a dock, and there they saw a rock ...

Call me crazy but I'm going to guess that we fished out most of the fish that eat lobster fry. Normally, these bright colored lobsters would have been easily seen and eaten by these fish. Now, they're not. But that's evolution and dipshiat America knows that's wrong. Must be jeebus or alien ghosts.

I find it funny that the Red Lantern for the sector where Earth is located is a CAT.

MEOW!!

Do you really want everyone on earth who reads Fark to attach to your computer and upload the image from the folder? i don't have enough upload bandwidth to do that myself, be careful, you could really slow your computer down!

Either link to an existing image on the web (right click, save location as, cut and paste into url section of image html), or save a local image to a website like photobucket and do the same.

Uh, aren't Red Lanterns the champions of Rage?

An incredibly angry space kitty with a power ring?

Please tell me that's cooler than it sounds, because right now it sounds like something my 7 year old would come up with while playing with the housecat.

Sing Hey-hi-de-ho,
Where'd the old lobster go,
their bodies so fuzzy and brow.

Sing Ho-hi-de-hey,
well they've all gone away,
and we never see any around.

Insects are good solid nutrition and are a cheaper and more sustainable source of protein than many other things.

Well, when you boil them up, just throw in some nice spices and this corn, and it'll be wicked good:

Apparently it was one horribly-mistreated, pissed off pussy, which is why it got tagged with the ring. It looks ridiculous in print, which is one reason why I quit reading the Lantern books. If that's all you need to gain incredible powers, why didn't Fred Phelps get tapped?

I thought Red was anger/rage, not hatred? You'd need somebody who is constantly in a state of anger, somebody who lives in rage and frothing madness of being literally red with anger all the time.

Glenn Beck the Red Lantern?

There's a Lobster Institute? Sounds like Dept. of Butter should pay them a visit.

I have actually seen a blue and a green lobster in person before but I grew up near the Bay of Fundy.
 
2012-07-23 01:37:42 PM
All I need to know is which type tastes the best with melted butter.

Well, lobsters are fortunately still fair game as they're crustaceans, not insects :D And prepared properly, arthropods can actually be tasty...yes, even some insects, notably grasshoppers and cicadas.

Then again, I've also tried to patiently note to the SO how eating a lobster or eating crawfish is not the equivalent of plopping a live Madagascar hissing cockroach into my mouth; this has not so far been successful, as the SO tends to not eat crustaceans unless sufficiently breaded so as to hide the crustacean-ness. :D

(And quite ironically, consumption of locusts--as in winged grasshoppers, certainly, and possibly including cicadas--are technically considered the one group of arthropods considered kosher (likely because they didn't present a potential risk of either red tide poisoning or poisoning via consumption of some other toxic-to-humans substance). I will also note that my love of shellfish and my love of bacon are the two reasons I really could not consider converting to Judaism :D)

His name is Dex-Starr and he's awesome. (... ok well I'm a crazy cat lady whose friends peg her as a Red Lantern so no question that I would think him to be awesome.)

The story of how he came about, in summary: one of the artists was sketching a giant Red Lantern pinup sort of thing, and as a joke he stuck a cat in there because it was the most ridiculous thing he could think to draw vomitting up blood. All these demons and disfigured creatures and even a shark, and in the middle of it all is this little anthropomorphic cat. Well, one of the higher-ups saw this and said "Holy fark that's great, leave it." And the artist said "Uh, no, seriously it's just a joke, I'll erase it" and the higher up reiterated "No, seriously - I really think that's awesome. Leave it."

The internet saw the little Red Lantern cat, thought it was hilarious and nicknamed him "Rage Kitty". In turn, Rage Kitty was written into the comic and given his own little backstory (got kinda dusty in here when I read it), named Dex-Starr and is now a regular Red Lantern.

Supposedly he's the most sadistic and violent of the Red Lanterns to boot.

Yes, you need to upload it to the web somewhere. There is no way on Fark to upload an image from your machine.

Get an account at some free photo hosting site. Most of them will allow you to upload, and then provide link to copy and paste. That link will be the URL you need.

But yeah, its gotta be on the web. Not your computer.

This, and frankly it's almost evidence of God that shrimp are sustainable, farmable, healthy, AND delicious. I say almost, because eating them is a sin. Abominations, can't live with em, can't live without em.
