Dinner last night, care of Stuart's Seafood Market in Amagansett, the most heavenly lobster bisque you could ever imagine:

All gone!!

At Stuart's we also saw an 11-pound lobster in a tank, which I lobbied Matthew to buy and set free, but at $11.99 a pound he demurred.

Even though you may have been eating his brother?

Well, I couldn't set free the one that gave its life for my bisque, so I thought setting free that behemoth would be the next best thing.

You know there's a whole Simpson episode where Homer buys a lobster that ends up as a pet. He took it for walks on the beach, on a leash.

But I must say, mmmmmmmmm lobster bisque mmmmmmmmm.

I think Funny, Silly, Nutz and Caroline might have some objections if Momogus brought home an 11-pound lobster on a leash, as a new pet. But - who knows?
And I certainly agree: mmmmmmmmm lobster bisque mmmmmmmmm.

CG - that's one of our favorite episodes! At the end Homer ends up eating the lobster and he's sobbing, "Pinchy! Oh Pinchy!" and then gobbling up and making yummy noises and then sobbing 'Pinchy!" again. It's dark, but it made us laugh out loud.

We would not eat Pinchy, however. I don't know about putting a leash on him either....
