Ben recently got busted but like every good “dealer,” he’s vowed to go even further underground which will be dificult because he already lives in a basement apartment.
Earlier today Canadian Maritime Lobstermen got a surprise when they called a government number regarding financial support for the struggling industry. According to The Canadian Press:
Maritime lobster fishermen in need of financial help got a lift of another kind Tuesday when they were directed to a toll-free number that was supposed to detail an aid package but connected them to a lusty sex line instead.
One of the several toll-free information numbers released by Fisheries Minister Gail Shea hooks callers up to a sex line that offers fishermen nary a detail on the lobster stimulus package.
(A spokesperson) said he didn’t know how many people had called before the correction was made, but added that the department hadn’t received any complaints.
Earlier this week we posted a Public Service Announcement about the dangers of swimming in Massachusetts waters where blue lobsters lurk.
The odds of a lobsterman catching a bright-orange lobster are estimated at 2 million or more to one. But at least three lobster retailers in Maine have found themselves with the rarity this week.
Bill Denley of Free Range Fish and Lobster in Portland says a lobsterman brought him an orange lobster this week that he’s offering to the New England Aquarium to put on display. Coincidentally, the nearby Portland Lobster seafood shop also has an orange lobster on display. And in Lewiston, George Gendron of Gendron’s Seafood says he came across an orange lobster when going through a crate of the crustaceans this week. He’s offering it to the Maine State Aquarium in Boothbay Harbor.
Lobsters are typically a mottled greenish-brown, turning red when they are cooked.
Better to eat orange than be eaten by blue.
