Switzerland has decided to ban the boiling alive of our crustacean friends.

The University of Maine, beholden to the moneyed interests of that state, has posted some pretty tepid excuses for the abhorrent practice of boiling them alive. A cursory search of the university's hiring practices demonstrates its appalling closed mindedness: it currently hires no lobsters at its famed lobster institute. No wonder its conclusions exclude the perspective of the crustacean!

Maine residents, it is feared, might respond with their own boycott of Swiss chocolate, knives, and watches.

And yet nobody cares about the pain that unborn children feel as they're ripped apart and sucked out of their "mothers" wombs.

The world is insane.

:idea: Maybe if we started calling babies not yet born "lobsters" they might care.
