I'd like my lobster with hair, please



No joke, scientists have discovered a furry lobster - a freakin' furry lobster. What the . . . ?

And get this they named it after "Kiwa, the goddess of crustaceans in Polynesian mythology." Who has a goddess of crustaceans? How do they merit their own divinity? When you show up for deity duty and you get the crustaceans, that's gotta be a crappy day. I mean, sure, they can do your bidding and all, but they are so all around tasty - how could you not just snack away all of your worshipers? Mmmmmm with some garlic-butter . . .

maybe it's called lobster sacrifice . . . it's a very holy calling for those who are chosen to be sacrificed to appease the goddess.

What purpose could the fur serve? To keep the lobster warm during those cold ocean winters?

The fur is more about look and funkiness (and believe me I know funky) The reason we are just finding these lobsters now is because this trend didn't set in until the 1970's. Most lobsters didn't go for it right away thinking it was only going to be a fad, but I think as time goes on it will be more and more popular. in 50 years all the lobsters will be doing it (it takes lobsters a while to catch up) and some will start teasing the hair up and making it really big. They will start bands that will be popular and known for their hair, and be called Lobster hair bands. Then after another 50 years the lobsters will get annoyed with the big hair and 20 minute guitar solo's and their hair will become all matted and greesy and they will call it lobster grundge (which will never top lobster bisque).

Or maybe I am confusing lobsters with sea turtles.
