Crustaceans In The News
A Norwegian study finds that lobsters can not feel pain. As the headline of the piece says, "No brain, no pain." Which doesn't explain the increasingly ancephalic Democrats but that's a story for another day. I just can't help imagining the researchers at the lobsters' necropsies (as watchers of "CSI" know, a human gets an autopsy, an animal gets a necropsy): "For the necropsy, I'll need a scalpel, a retractor, a nutcracker and lots of drawn butter."
