Breaking: Large dead lobster spotted in Tompkins Square Park

Just now via Jose Garcia.



Uh, explanations?

More from Jose:

"Definitely not alive but clearly had a rough night. Maybe missed the party bus or something. Who knows?"

Thats a good pound and 3/4 to 2 pounderer - what a waste - from the depths of the ocean to a death by suffocation in TSP. Wasting meat is a moral crime.

Ah! Very true! We're under attack... hope that the lobsters stay away from the playgrounds...

I wonder how many people saw it out of the corner of their eyes and just figured it was a really large roach.

@abrod: Ha! I thought the same thing! Looks like a cockroach with a thyroid condition! I wonder what the story is behind this?

Maybe yippie was just being kind and leaving something out for the less fortunate who don't have any lobster?

Pinchy?

Maybe Tommy the resident hawk plucked it from the ocean and decided it was too salty to eat so dumped it?

LOL @ Pinchy

If you connect the dots (last week the wood cock = shorebird, this week the lobster) the picture becomes clear: The sea level is rising, and these critters are checking out their new habitat.
