PETA Liberates Elderly Lobster

City Crab and Seafood, a swanky restaurant on Park Avenue, knuckled under to PETA and agreed to free a lobster from its tank, on the grounds that it weighs 20 pounds and therefore must be really old. Apparently geriatric lobsters are too special to eat.

Lobsters are basically giant cockroaches that taste good. The special lobster was taken to Maine in a cooler with seaweed and cold packs, to be released in an area where harvesting giant sea cockroaches is forbidden.

Wouldn't it be nice to have as much free time as animal rights activists?

Think how old this one must be.

On a tip from Wiggins.

That lobster has one heckuva carbon footprint now.

...meanwhile there are hundreds of thousands of North Korean orpahans lining in the streets and starving to death.
Ironic that the PETA people are more concerned about lobsters.

So they didn't actually, like, pay for it or something, they just forced the restaurant to release it. That's nice of them. Presumably the restaurant spent money to acquire that lobster, which they have now lost, thanks to the moonbats.

I guess forcing other people to pay for their moonbattery is acceptable to them.

Hopefully, the lobster will be stupid enough to wander into another lobster trap, caught, and eventually served up with some tasty drawn butter!

I STILL love the story Sean Hannity tells, of how he once gave his producer "Flipper" a lobster gram, and being the moonbat that she is, decided to release it.... but left the bands on its claws, and released it into a freshwater pond!

And about a half hour after it was released it became shark food.

Is this why PETA members harbor crabs?

Giant sea cockroaches? Works both ways, VH - nobody will want to fork out cash to protect them, but no one will want to eat them either!

I think you are thinking like sukrat, but I think you should cover the other side of the topic in the post too...
