Breakin' OUT!

When's the last time your dinner ran away from you? A bunch of lobsters in a supermarket in Germany wiggled out of their crates, out the front door, and down the street to freedom.

"Passersby alerted the police at 1:45 a.m., reporting a large number of (lobsters) heading down the street." They've been taken to an animal home and the supermarket has made no move to reclaim them.

I wonder where they would have ultimately ended up, had the police not thwarted their escape. Did they have a plan? Girlfriends they wanted to reunite with? Or just a general urge to get the hell out of that store?

Thanks to Sloan for this link.

Dang. That's a perfect Germany or Florida question. Except the part about the lobsters finding refuge at an animal home. That would never happen in Florida.

I like to think they were planning to go back to the ocean and warn the others, start a PR campaign or something.

Luckily the police negotiator spoke shellfish.

I'm sure it was a tense standoff, involving the a menacing wave of the chelipeds, and the cops yelling: "put your pereiopods in the air! All eight of them!"

I love it when the animals organize! They definitely had a plan.

God bless those determined little crustaceans.
