The Last Lonely Lobster at Albertson's

What a pathetic scene.

We shop at Albertson's. There are always lobsters for sale. Today, as they played a sad Air Supply song, there was only one lobster left in the tank.

The lobster was all by itself in a corner of the tank. Its claws were taped together and it was "reduced to sell." That was the worth of its life. I don't know how old it is or how old it could have been. But it was now just another "product" that someone was getting rid of.

All I could think of was how happier I would have been if it had lived its life free from display and incarceration, in the ocean where it was born and where it belonged.

Is it possible to buy one and just set it free back into the ocean? Or is it contaminated by human tampering so that it could never return?

Worth looking into....

Anyway, crappy morning.

Stupid Air Supply.
