September 25th National Lobster Day
Today is not a good day to be a lobster. (Is any day a good day to be a lobster?) There was a time when lobster in the northeast was actually pretty cheap to come by… then the world invented butter and the prices went up. It is quite a treat, in some cases a feast, and while I think most lobsters would rather be thought of as tasteless I don’t see that happening any time soon. It’s sort of funny to think that a creature that dwells on the bottom of the ocean is among those things on the top of the menu.
How to celebrate – Have a lobster today. Free a lobster today. Dress like a lobster today.
