The sound of those claws being ripped off induces involuntary salivation on my part. So juicy sounding...

I don't see what the big deal is. It's essentially a bug. Nobody ever cared about what bugs feel before. Hell, I still don't. I don't care if a cockroach has feelings - I'm going to kill it and everything it loves.

A haiku for you.

I killed a cockroach
It had a wife and two kids
I slept peacefully

Mr. Garrison: A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesn't rhyme and it's totally stupid.

I don't want a fuckin speech it suffered way more listening to Jacques Cousteau there than it would if it got plopped in boiling water straight off by a Jap. I swear I'll give you 50 bucks if you can find a lobster's brain without tweezers and a textbook.

I feel real bad about people eating squid though. That's not right.

That's just to make up for all the people the Humboldts have killed underwater, though.

*glocks the lobster

It seems like a well-placed hit from a mallet would be quicker.

Really not sure if that actually killed the thing instantly, but I at least like how considerate he was of his audience. That's something, I guess.

From 'http://www.lobsters.org/tlcbio/biology6.html':

"Do lobsters feel pain? This question has been asked by many a person who tosses a live lobster into a boiling pot or slices the live lobster down the middle to bake stuff. The answer is not at all clear. The lobster's nervous system has been extremely well-studied because it serves as a "simple" model of neural circuitry in something less complicated than the highly cephalized vertebrates. Lobsters do not possess any kind of receptor akin to our pain receptors. However, they do possess stress receptors and certainly perceive the slice of a knife. It is not known whether they possess any kind of temperature sensitivity, although each species is adapted to live in a certain range of temperatures and will eventually die if forced to live beyond its normal temperature range. Scientists have not discovered how a lobster's "brain" processes sensory information from cuticular stress or temperature, so we cannot say for sure if they feel pain or not. Many people have debated how to "humanely" kill a lobster with ideas ranging from electrocution to freezing before boiling (though that also exposes them to an unpleasant temperature and it takes some time before they die). The general consensus is that death is most rapid - - and, if they do indeed "feel" something, it is only momentary - - if they are placed into a boiling pot of water."
