Europe’s the mayonnaise, but America supplies the good old lobster.D. H. Lawrence
Grilling outside with my parents at the Jersey shore. We would grill lobster and corn in the summer.Bobby Flay
When I get a chance to play golf or go on a boat with good people, take the boat out and put some lobsters on the grill, get the ice-cold beer and the cigars – that’s heaven here on earth.Bernie Mac
A great war shall burst forth from fishes of steel. Machines of flying fire, lobsters, grasshoppers, mosquitoes. The mass attacks shall be repulsed in the woods, when no child in Germany shall obey any longer.Nostradamus
I’m really into food; it’s one of my favourite things – everything from potato waffles to lobster.Paloma Faith
I’m fairly adventurous with my eating. I’ve tried kangaroo, and Moreton Bay bugs, which are a kind of lobster, are so good.Brian O’Driscoll
If you’re thinking of coming to America, this is what it’s like: you’ve got your Comfort Inn, you’ve got your Best Western, and you’ve got your Red Lobster where you eat. Everybody’s very fat, everybody’s very stupid and everybody’s very rude – it’s not a holiday programme, it’s the truth.Jeremy Clarkson
I’d never eaten lobster before. I was 21. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. I was scooping guts. But I tied for third. And the two men who beat me didn’t look good. One was Bob Shoudt. He seemed in pain. And I felt fine! I was ‘Oh, my God, they look like they’re dying. And I can eat so much more!’ I knew I was made for it after that contest.Joey Chestnut
A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be lobster salad and Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming viands.Lord Byron
According to my mother, there pretty much wasn’t anything I wouldn’t eat as a child. Not just try, but eat. I was even inclined to dig into stuff about which she expressed open disgust – lobster and other shellfish, and cheap Chinese food with pepper so hot it made your gums feel like a medieval dentist had been at them.Alice Dreger
I’m a big fish eater. Salmon – I love salmon. My sister loves Chinese food and sushi and all that. I’m not as big of a fan, but she likes it so we eat it a lot. So I’m beginning to like it more. I don’t like the raw sushi. I liked the cooked crab and lobster and everything.Elle Fanning
When I get through tearing a lobster apart, or one of those tender West Coast octopuses, I feel like I had a drink from the fountain of youth.Joseph Mitchell
At the end of the day, the quality of life is all we have, and it’s just as important to that lobster, the quality of life that it lives – even if it’s not as long – as the quality of your life.John Mackey
I started writing ‘The Lobster Kings’ the day after I sold my first novel, ‘Touch.’Alexi Zentner
For ‘The Lobster Kings,’ I listened to a lot of Johnny Cash. And it makes its way into the book.Alexi Zentner
I did 12 shows in 13 weeks at a summer theater in Maine where we were paid $35 a week. After taxes and $25 for room and board, I had enough money for a pack of cigarettes and a bowl of lobster bisque.Martin Landau
It’s hard to imagine a time when lobster pots weren’t part of a well-equipped kitchen, but America’s love affair with the two-clawed crustaceans didn’t start until the 1800s.Susannah Cahalan
My most memorable job was on a lobster boat. I was a pretty strong kid, and they just needed someone who could haul pots on 200 ft. of line.Mark Kurlansky
Ocean acidification is often referred to as osteoporosis of the oceans because as acidity rises, shell building creatures such as lobster, oyster, crab, shrimp, and coral are unable to extract the calcium carbonate from the water that they need to build their shells and are thus unable to survive.Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
The B-52s, you know, our songs are about volcanoes or lobsters. Cindy and I sing them like our lives depend on them. I feel very emotional when I’m singing ‘Rock Lobster,’ but I’ve wanted to sing more about my personal experience.Kate Pierson
In a band with humor, it’s easy to be a caricature, especially when you’ve been around as long as we have. But we sing those songs as genuine as we can, always from the heart. When we do the fish sounds in ‘Rock Lobster,’ Cindy and I are pouring our hearts out.Kate Pierson
At some private events, we’ll see the CEO of the company get up and do his ‘Rock Lobster’ dance. The band used to grumble that, ‘All they talk about is hair and don’t take us seriously,’ but I’ve realized that what this band does the best is let loose and let people’s freak flag fly.Kate Pierson
I can’t even kill a lobster without saying a Hail Mary for it.Johnny Iuzzini
People will send me tweets or texts, ‘Yo, I’m at Red Lobster now and they’re playing Mayer Hawthorne,’ more of that kind of stuff, which is hilarious.Mayer Hawthorne
I don’t have anything to prove as a writer anymore. I write about Panera Bread or Red Lobster or Satan or Richard Ramirez or whatever comes to mind. I just write.Mark Kozelek
There are a handful of barbecue seafood shacks on the beach at Hat Nai Yang, which is a fabulous place to have dinner. It’s very much run for locals and they serve the catch of the day, which might be lobster, white snapper or squid. It’s ridiculously reasonable, too.Tony Parsons
People come up to me and tell me how they were in a dark place and our music helped them out. It’s mind-blowing. It’s not just ‘Rock Lobster’ or ‘Love Shack’ – there’s much more there.Cindy Wilson
I came to work one day, and Ricky was playing music on his guitar, just snickering. He played me the riff that turned out to be ‘Rock Lobster,’ and it was hilarious. He was just trying to be funny. His guitar style made it moodier, and it really is a driving song, but it does have that funny humor to it.Cindy Wilson
I loved ‘Rock Lobster.’ I probably heard ‘Rock Lobster’ first at a party or dance. Then we would do the Rock Lobster – get down on the floor and do the whole dance. I thought that was really cool and exciting, that there was actually a band that had their own dance at that point.Corin Tucker
Seafood was always my favorite food. I mean, fried lobster? Come on. Once I found out shrimp, scallops and lobster were my allergic triggers, I had to change my diet.Adrian Peterson
Like the Devil, the Norway lobster is known by a variety of different names: cigala in Spain, langoustine in France, Dublin Bay Prawn in Ireland. And in Italy, as well as the U.K., scampi.Tom Parker Bowles
I’m in the water twice a week diving for lobster.Ignacio Serricchio
As a kid, I used to be equal parts drawn to and horrified of the circus. They would have these beautiful canvas posters for Lobster Boy, bearded women, and this and that.Mitch Glazer
My ideal meal varies, depending on the time of year. Lobster on a deck overlooking a beach at sunset is one – but all my kids have to be there, because they are all lobster-lovers. Making a bolognese sauce over pappardelle for my husband on a winter evening, because he loves my bolognese sauce and it’s his comfort food.Amy Bloom
To me, nothing says summer like enjoying a lobster roll at my favorite spots in the Hamptons.Katie Lee
I’m horrified of lobsters. And shrimp and lobsters are the cockroaches of the ocean.Brooke Burke
Hey, we all have our fear. Mine is bugs and lobsters!Brooke Burke
I had a little delivery van, and I did work around Queens. I was also a waiter at Red Lobster, so I was working on the business in between jobs.DAYMOND JOHN
I couldn’t make ends meet. I tried Red Lobster. I tried Wal-Mart. I tried all these places and I couldn’t make it. I couldn’t. So, I tried this gentlemen’s club, and, you know, I worked there, and it was just awful in those places. It was terrible.Anna Nicole Smith
Raw lobster tail, freeze dried, is amazing.Nathan Myhrvold
I think in France, for example, we can say whatever we want about the French, but going out and dining is more about the intellectual moment to share with the people you dine with than trying to figure out what the chef did with that little piece of salmon or lobster and all that.Daniel Boulud
A lobster roll and a few glasses of fizz and I’m happy.Zawe Ashton
Red Lobster reminds me of my dad because he would always get coupons and be like, ‘We’re going to treat ourselves.’Nicole Byer
‘The Lobster’ is very particular, and we did need to create a very specific world with specific rules so the whole premise would work.Yorgos Lanthimos
‘The Lobster,’ at some point, was my most accessible film. Then I made ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer,’ which turned out to be not as accessible as ‘The Lobster.’ It was the film I wanted to make and the story I wanted to tell.Yorgos Lanthimos
The first time I was paid was with ‘The Lobster,’ because with the Greek films, we just had to pay ourselves – work for free while making commercials in order to survive.Yorgos Lanthimos
When I started cooking the meal at home, after I had started cooking in restaurants, I usually would prepare bay scallops or lobster.Alain Ducasse
I’m from Manchester, Mass., so it was lobster, lobster and more lobster! Also, lots of fish that we caught in the summers, clam chowder and roast beef sandwiches. But my mom was pretty healthy; we had a lot of chicken and broccoli and rice as well.Sprague Grayden
I’ve eaten lion, leopard, crocodile, python. I don’t recommend lion. It tastes exactly like when a tomcat comes into your house and sprays. Snake and crocodile are great – a cross between lobster and chicken.Wilbur Smith
What is Lobster?
Lobsters have long bodies with muscular tails, and they live in crevices or burrows on the sea floor. Three of their five pairs of legs have claws, including the first pair, which are usually much larger than the other pairs.
Highly valued as seafood, lobster is economically important and is often one of the most profitable commodities in coastal areas.
Commercially important species include two species of Homarus (which looks more like a stereotypic lobster) from the Northern Atlantic Ocean, and scampi (which looks more like a shrimp or a “mini lobster”) from the Northern Hemisphere genus Nephrops and the Southern Hemisphere genus Metanephrops.
Although several other groups of crustaceans have the word “lobster” in their names, the unqualified term “lobster” generally refers to the clawed lobster of the Nephropidae family.
Clawed lobsters are not closely related to spiny lobsters or slipper lobsters, which have no claws, or squat lobsters.
The closest living relatives of the clawed lobsters are the reef lobsters and the three freshwater crayfish families.
