Finally! My Google alert for "lobster news" pays off! A rare "calico lobster" was apprehended by fishermen and is now in residence at the New England Aquarium.


Look at this fancy fucking lobster!

The lobster is dark with bright orange and yellow spots. It was caught off Winter Harbor, Maine and is being held at the New England Aquarium for the Biomes Marine Biology Center, a science center in Rhode Island.

Aquarium spokesman Tony Lacasse says calico lobsters are quite rare.

The Maine-based Lobster Conservancy says perhaps one lobster in 1 million is blue, while both the orange and calico versions might be as rare as 1 in 30 million.

One in 30 million? Whatevs. Other scientists (me) speculate that the calico lobster might not actually be quite that rare—it's just hard to find because it just spends all of its time hanging out with dudes dressed like this. If you want to smoke weed with Orange Camo Lobster, you can find it this summer at the Gathering of the Juggalos.



That damn lobster gets invited everywhere.
