Well that was rather messy ...

I decided I wanted to make a stuffed lobster for dinner so I went and bought one. I read that if you put it into the freezer for like 15 minutes it knocks out the lobster. Well I did and it appeared to be unconscious. Then I whipped out my 10 inch long chef knife and proceeded to split it down the length of the creature. So far so good, until half of the severed body jumped like 6 inches off the cutting board and onto the ground

PETA people please ignore

After you freeze the lobster, you're supposed to COOK the lobster first (so it's dead) and then proceed to open it up

I got matching flak jackets for Brad, Angie, Maddux, and the new one. I figured it would come in handy as they were removing mines from cambodia during one of their summer vacations.

Sal, I think you're supposed to cook it before you split it? Anyway, I just toss them into the pot while still live and conscious. I had a high school teacher who said they're so stupid, they don't even know they're alive, so I wouldn't sweat it.

I found that when you do that, they start "screaming" and that's really annoying, and also a bit cruel. I'd rather knock them unconscious first, so that at least they preserve their freshness, but they don't suffer (too much).

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?

I heard that the noise was the air escaping from inside the shell... not the lobster screaming. awwwwwww

Hel, the recipe said to split it down the middle when it was alive and then to quickly saute the flesh side in the pan before stuffing it. Who am I to argue?

Anyhow it came out good after the "incident"
