Well, now you have.

Look what showed up in a shipment of lobster at Roche Bros. Supermarket in Westborough, Massachusetts.  An honest to god orange lobster!

According to a story from the AP, the lobster was included in a shipment from Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.

We have to wonder if it tastes like citrus.

After starring in wonderment, workers from the Supermarket eventually donated the strange looking crustacean to the New England Aquarium in Boston, where highly intelligent folk there determined that it was anywhere between 7 to 9 years old.

When a reporter from the AP contacted The Lobster Institute at UM in Orono, even more intelligent folk there said that the chances of catching an orange lobster is about 1 in 30 million.

Maybe it's a zombie lobster.  Maybe someone cooked it and then tossed it into the aquarium in the supermarket, where it came back to life.  Did any of those scholars  think of that?
