Electric Chair for Lobsters

A Lawyer in Jolly old Britain has invented a new method of killing lobsters. The "Crusta-Stun" (presumably a shortening of crustacean and stun gun) will retail for about £2,000. That's around $3,300. Yikes.

This "humane" way to dispatch your lobster is supposedly even sanctioned by PETA. If we invented machines big enough for cows, does that mean beef's back on the menu too?

lobsters have to be killed very quickly or they release a toxin that ruins the meat. this method sounds effective and painless, a good combination.

get some wooden handled tongs, unplug a lamp, take out the bulb, pick up the lobster with the tongs, put it's claw (or tail) in the bulb socket, have a helper plug in the lamp...TA DA! cheaper by far. :cheese:
