Lobster Chat

Did you hear about the 140-year-old lobster who finally obtained his freedom?  The lobster was on death row at City Crab and Seafood in New York City.  He was caught off Newfoundland about 10 days ago. You can read the complete story here: odd_liberated_lobster Once again, my blog is the place to go for an exclusive interview with the lobster, which is named Lenny. Me: Mr. Lobster it's an honor to meet you. Lenny: Could you please speak up.  I am 140-years-old! Me: OF COURSE.  HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE RELEASED FROM CERTAIN DEATH. Lenny: No need to shout, boy.  I didn't really think I was going to die.  I've been in worse jams then this. Me: Really, like what? Lenny: It was back in 1886.  I was cruising around the coast and I was actually caught by President Grover Cleveland.  That's right.  He was hunting for lobsters.  I was brought all the way to the White House in Washington D.C. Me: What happened? Lenny: Well, it turned out that ol' Grover and I had a mutual friend.  My buddy, Harry actually worked as a clerk on the same law firm Cleveland worked for in Buffalo, New York.  He had to let me go. Me: Interesting.  Any other close calls? Lenny: Perhaps my biggest was in April of 1914.  I was captured once again and was supposed to be dinner on a cruise ship called The Titanic.  Have you heard of it? Me: You mean to tell me you escaped that disaster?! Lenny: Yes, a beautiful woman let me ride  on her back.  She had a boyfriend on the ship, but I think he didn't make it.  I believe they made a movie about it.  I believe Kathy Bates played me. Me: Amazing story. Lenny:  Look, I'd like to talk with you all afternoon, but I've got to get back to the ocean before the clowns  in this restaurant change their minds and realize how good I would taste with some hot butter.
