Ridiculous 21-pound lobster caught in New England

by 6 years ago

We’ve covered expensive foods extensively, but today we’re talking size. A monster 21-pound lobster was recently caught near Cape Cod and is on display at Cap’n Elmer’s in Orleans, Mass.

Just reading the weight doesn’t do much for me. I’ve never held a lobster so I don’t really know what standard would be. After seeing the picture though, I quickly realized just how absurd this thing is. Seriously. Stop and look at that picture for awhile. The lobster is 3 feet long, which is bigger than the woman’s entire upper body. It really looks like a mutant. Lucky for her it doesn’t appear to know ninjutsu?

Apparently Larry Lobster will result in about 5lbs of meat. I can’t think of the last time I ate lobster, but I would absolutely destroy this thing in one sitting. It is being raffled off for charity, so I at least gives me a shot at winning it. If I do, rest assured I will make a video of my seafood assault. Maybe I’ll invite Pat Bertoletti along for the ride.

If you’re bored, read the comments after the CBS Boston post. How does an article about a giant lobster turn into a political slam session?
