    Why can't they let him go? They have 2 already. I hope he makes it, not like Bubba from 2005.

    Bubba was a massive lobster heaved from the waters of Nantucket, Massachusetts in February of 2005. The majestic crustacean of 23 lbs was one of the largest ever recorded (though the largest lobster on record weighed 44 pounds, twice Bubba's size).

    It was ultimately decided that Bubba would be displayed at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on March 2. However, Bubba died the next day. While the exact cause is still unknown, foul play (i.e. steaming) has been dismissed. Marine biologists speculate that it was the result of stress accumulated from travel, or possibly an incorrect salt mixture in the water he was being moved about in.

    I thought it was sad too. Imagine going from living in the ocean to living in an aquarium. I know how he feels living in this tiny apartment. At least I can go outside.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
