“Half Cooked” Lobster
What is your first impression when you saw this picture (click on it for a larger view) of a lobster? So cruel, a half cooked lobster! How could anyone do this? That's my initial thought too. Surprisingly, it is neither half cooked nor manipulated by image editing software, it is the real thing!
This two-toned lobster was caught in Maine. It appears that the blue pigment present in normal lobster is missing along halve of its shell, thus giving it a half cooked appearance. The odd of finding one such lobster is 1 in 50 million. It must have been a really lucky day for the fishermen who caught it.
This picture reminds me of my lobster dinner experience while touring around New Zealand. It was Christmas Eve and the tour agency made special arrangements for it. Our eyes were popping out of its sockets when we discovered that each person was allocated a whole lobster! No words can describe my dinning experience at that time. Oh no, I am drooling already!
