Irony of the Day

According to the Washington Post, a sympathetic customer at a Potomac, MD seafood shop freed a 15 lb. lobster that had been destined to be sold and eaten:

...the oversized crustacean, estimated to be between 35 and 40 years old, yesterday began a 400-mile journey back to its home waters off the coast of Massachusetts. One of the lobster's admirers purchased it for $150 -- about $30 more than Grolig [the storeowner] paid the wholesaler -- and he agreed to coordinate the animal's liberation with help from his friends.

When last seen the lobster was wearing a button that said "Save Terri".
