 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8      Quarts        Hot Water -- Boiling
    1                    Lobster
      1/4  Pound         Butter -- Melted
 
 
  Everyone loves these delectable crustaceans, but many cooks
  are squeamish about placing them into boiling water alive, which is
  the only proper method of preparing them.  Frankly, the easiest way
  to eliminate your guilt is to establish theirs by putting them on
  trial before they're cooked.  The fact is, lobsters are among the
  most ferocious predators on the sea floor, and you're helping reduce
  crime in the reefs.  
 
 Grasp the lobster behind the head, look it right
  in its unmistakably guilty eyestalks and say, “Where were you on the
  night of the 21st?”, then flourish a picture of a scallop or a sole
  and shout, “Perhaps this will refresh that crude neural apparatus you
  call a memory!”  The lobster will squirm noticeably.  It may even
  take a swipe at you with one of its claws.  Incorrigible. 
 
  Pop it into the pot. Justice has been served, and shortly you and your
  friends will be, too.

 After lobster is added to hot water,  wait a while till bright red.
 Remove lobster from hot water. Bash lobster repeatedly with heavy object
 using fingers and implements...pick out lobster chunks and plunge into 
 melted butter.
 
 Eat and repeat steps

 Suggested Wine: Chardonnay
 
 NOTES : To crack and open the shell, use a heavy object such as a hammer 
        to really clobber the lobster after boiling.
        
        Nutpicks, pliers, tweezers and other impliments may be helpful in 
        removing the meat.
        
        Do not use napkin...lick fingers clean to enjoy every last drop!
