Someone should tell that guy that the lobster hasn't seen WWI if it is only 80.

The lobster then immediately got re-trapped by the restaurant where it was eaten by a middle management Japanese business man on vacation. The end.

If it was found in a restaurant, then wouldn't it have been trapped or netted at least once?

Keys dude: Today is Day 1 of the two-day lobster mini-season in Florida (the regular eight-month season opens Aug. 6). You can practically walk boat to boat down here in the Keys with everyone on the hunt.

Let the debate begin: I posit with no hesitation that Florida lobster kicks northern lobster ass,


i posit with no hesitation that you are talking out of your floridian arse

Owner says:" Oh, he'll kill me one day or another. But he will remember forever that I caught him, and I held him prisoner. So there's my immortality, eh?"

The Hartford Courant has a picture of the lobster that I think you will all agree is worth a look.

I posit that lobster is a farking sea cockroach and tastes as such. farking disgusting even covered in melted butter.

Here's a tip: if you're slathering on 'sauces' and other flavor concealors, whatever you're eating tastes like shiat. See: Ranch and Ketchup.

Trolling aside, I haven't ever had lobster that made me go 'why yes, this sea-roach was worth paying 20$ for!' It always tastes like salty, buttery, piss-meat to me. I know a lot of people love it, but I can't wrap my head around why, and especially can't understand why it's become such a huge deal.

I like seafood in general, but dislike shrimp, lobster, etc. almost universally, and I've tried them multiple times. I usually default to getting 'mini popcorn shrimp' or something if I get dragged to a seafood place that doesn't sell real fish for less then 400$ (Red lobster for some reason has an aversion to selling actual fresh fish for a sane price), and just cover the shiat in ketchup.

j__z: "This lobster has seen World War I, World War II, seen the landing on the moon and the Red Sox win the World Series, he's made it this far in life," MacKenzie said. "He deserves to live."

I don't think the lobster pays attention to the news.


Neither do most of my fellow Americans, but I wouldn't eat any of them

Lobster are, essentially, bugs. Big bugs. Exoskeletal, multi-legged, antennaed, ganglia-brained bugs. Sure, some biologist might supply a more detailed classification ("But, but, their eyes are not faceted!"). But we normal humans know the score: Lobsters are bugs.

Would you spare a cockroach just because it was a big old survivor?

This guy is not a hero. It's an animal... and a sea creature at that. Even animal right nuts don't hold sea animals at the same standard they do say.. a dog.

Rodrigo Hernandez: Someone should tell that guy that the lobster hasn't seen WWI if it is only 80.


It's almost like you can't tell exactly, and it was estimated between 80-100 years old.

While there is no scientific way to determine a lobster's age, Mackenzie said, the most common way is by its size and by estimating how many times it has shed its shell. He estimated the lobster to be between 80 and 100 years old.

Lobsters that large are going to be horribly tough and not enjoyable to eat, in any event.
