Why Not Win Your Fancy Seafood Dinner from a Lobster Claw Machine?
This is one of those things that seems completely obvious the second you see it. Seriously, everyone needs to have gotten onboard with this centuries ago, or whenever claw games were invented.
Apparently, it’s not all that different from traditional claw machines. You put in your money (albeit, a little extra) and fish around for a while until you get your lobster. These things, with names like Sub Marine Catcher and Lobster Zone, are available at restaurants where, once you’ve got a lobster, they cook it for you. If you’re good at the game, you can probably save a good 80 percent on your meal, so that’s cool.
Ugh, but of course, here comes The Atlantic to ruin our fun by making us think about, like, ethics and stuff. C’mon, guys. Can’t we eat our traumatized crustaceans in peace?
But, seriously, if you’re a fan of lobster (eating, not rescuing), don’t read the article. It’s kind of depressing.
