Ok, if you are an animal lover and dont like to hear about lobsters getting cooked so they can be eaten, please do not read on!!!!
At physical therapy, a couple of the therapists and I were talking about Lobsters, seafood, and Cape Cod. This one therapist had a good story. His brother in law was coming in from the mid-west and never had lobster. So at a family lobster/clam bake on Cape Cod, he wanted his brother in law to try first hand on how to cook live lobsters.
Now, this therapist's wife is standing by with a video camera. The therapist tells his brother in law to put the lobster into the boiling water tail first!. Well he did,
and in a split second that lobster basically flew out of the pot into the air and landed on the ground!
Needless to say, the correct method is head first .
