First, a snappy little heartwarmer of a story that'll claw at your heart strings:
A 140-year-old lobster that was destined to adorn a dinner plate is back in the ocean after a seafood restaurant in New York City granted him a reprieve.
The 20-pound crustacean, named George, was returned to the wild Saturday in a rocky cove in Kennebunkport, Maine, less than a mile from the summer home of former President George H.W. Bush.
George the lobster was transported to Maine by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which had beseeched City Crab and Seafood to allow the lobster to go free.
Way to go, City Crab and Seafood, you get extra cookies.
Now we all deserve a bunch of crabby songs. (You already know where this is going to end, don't you?)
