      On another note, if anyone has qualms about it, I would only ask if they ever swat flies or eliminate cockroaches (very comparable in my opinion).

      •  you can plunge a kitchen knife (0+ / 0-)

        into the back of the lobster's head, severing the spinal cord. Then, immediately boil it. That's a much quicker death.
