Glenn talks giant lobsters, Wilbur the pig, and talking spiders

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

There was a story on TheBlaze.com this morning that caught Glenn’s attention. A woman caught a 21lb lobster near Cape Cod. The lobster is a close second to the even bigger one that was caught off the coast of Maine earlier this year, and was almost as long as the torso of the woman who caught it.

While telling listeners about the story, Glenn pointed out that Stu (who is a vegetarian) had a weird philosophy that people now won’t eat the lobster because it’s old or special or something.

“Once we assign it a personality we stop eating it. I don’t understand that philosophy. You either eat these animals or you don’t.” Stu said.

Glenn didn’t seem to have a problem imagining eating the lobster, asking, “Can you imagine dipping it in the butter? You could put your whole head in the butter trough.”

“Lobster is nothing more than a butter delivery system anyway,” Stu pointed out.

There were no disagreements from Glenn or Pat there, but this did lead them down a path of discussing how creepy eating lobster is. “First of all, the people that found lobsters and decided to eat them had to be wildly starving,” he said.

We aren’t sure if Glenn, Pat and Stu were just hungry this morning or needed a break from talking politics, but make sure to watch the hilarious clip above to find out how a conversation about lobsters lead to a passionate discussion on Charlotte’s Web – where Glenn made the claim that Charlotte (yes, the spider) could have taken over the world, and caused Stu to put out a call for a sequel to the book: Charlotte’s Web Kingdom of The Spiders.

    Glenn here are the reason why most assume the lobster will not be eaten when given an name and personality; it makes them on par with our pets that most of us have around us on a daily basis. It makes them apprear to be ‘more than just an animal.”

    And in regards to the people finding the lobster being starving; not necessarily, there is a glut of lobsters on the market this year according to many media sources online.

    In the depths of the White House, the lights burn bright as a desperate decision is made, the long meeting drawing to a conclusion at last…

    (Obama, sitting at his desk, swirling his signature on an executive order)
    (Obama: “There, this grants a full pardon for that lobster, all 21 pounds of it. Have it brought to the White House at once so we can ensure its taken care of.”

    (White House aide as he leaves the Oval Office hears Obama speaking: “Hello, master cook, the lobster is on the way; make sure that its served for the main course. WHAT DO YOU MEAN BECK ALREADY BEAT US TO IT?”

    Beck set the lobster free; and the screaming of Obama is said to have gone on for days.

    SOMEBODY needs to cut these guys’ sugar supply off!  They’re getting waaaaaaay too wound up!(lol)
    I agree with Snowleopard, the min`ute we name something, we become bonded to it, as if it were a cherished pet.
    I suppose it’s a good thing I don’t like lobster; the meat is far too sweet for my palate.  Stick some steamed red king or opie crab in front of me though- it’s game on!

    Stu’s reference was real?  I thought he was making that kingdom of the spider’s thing up!

    Don’t forget that there was a time, I think in New England, when lobsters were fed to prisoners. They were thought of as trash food, and were dirt cheap.  Times have changed, THOUGH this year the Maine lobstermen are hurting real bad…

    I laughed SO HARD when I heard this bit on the radio yesterday, I was crying.  Sometimes you just need a break from politics, and this was a welcome one.  Thanks, guys!  Made my day…

     Even when he has a story, he makes a story out of it. And when Stu puts his thoughts with Glenn’s…well, it morfs into a whole differant conclusion. I love those two together, always have.
