    Default A 140 year old lobster is saved before being eaten at a restaurant?

    I didn't realize lobsters can live that long?


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    NEW YORK – A new lease on life — at 140? That's what a Manhattan lobster got Friday, when the 20-pound crustacean named George was released from a swanky Park Avenue restaurant's tank. City Crab and Seafood agreed to a request from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to let the lobster return to the Atlantic Ocean.

    "We applaud the folks at City Crab and Seafood for their compassionate decision to allow this noble old-timer to live out his days in freedom and peace," said PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk.

    Some scientists estimate lobsters can live to be more than 100 years old. PETA and the restaurant gauged George's age at about 140, using a rule of thumb based on the creature's weight.

    Caught off Newfoundland, Canada, George lived in the tank for about 10 days. He was to be released Saturday near Kennebunkport, Maine, in an area where lobster trapping is forbidden.

    The lobster was to make the trip to Maine in a plastic foam cooler, surrounded by seaweed, cold packs and wet newspapers.

    George's life was saved by a diner who notified PETA after spotting the crustacean at the restaurant, where steamed Maine lobster goes for $27 per pound, said PETA spokesman Michael McGraw.

    He said there have been at least a half-dozen other lobster "liberations" in restaurants around the country.

    PETA is gay, thats what it did.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    If I was 140, I hope somebody would have the compassion to just eat me.

    this lobster is a punk and a coward. he should have said "you know what, i'm 140 years old. i've lived a long and meaningful life. take me, not the youngster." i'll never look at lobster the same again. some of you might say that i shouldn't stereotype lobsters, but i've seen this too many times. they're lazy, they collect welfare and now this bullshit with wanting to be freed because he is 140.

    You got it all wrong man. George Lobster paid his dues. All he wants is to ride off into the sunset peacefully, when it's his time to go.
