Umm, Senator Susan Collins: Lobsters aren't brown

Yesterday, DU's "guru-in-becoming," Earl G, did another wonderful post about a gaggle of Republican hypocrites. Susan Collins, Senator of Maine, was included in his gallery of people who are fucking American voters every single day. And those voters are clueless.

My response to Earl G's post was that, in effect, Susan Collins, feeds the people of Maine fresh lobster daily, and that lobster isn't brown.

She voted for killing Obamacare, she voted for Kavanagh, she voted for the insane Republican tax cut, yet she calls herself a "moderate Republican."

I responded to it, but my neighbor's friend, who lives in New England, responded in a superior manner.

This morning, my neighbor received a (frozen) Fed Ex package with two lobsters in it. They were red, fully cracked and ready to eat.

Face it. Have you ever had a two lobsters for breakfast? (And they were red, not brown.)

1. Lobsters turn red during cooking; they are brown when taken from the sea

19. SOME lobsters are brown.

 

It would be fair to say most lobsters are brown.

But saying noncooked lobsters are brown would be inaccurate.

2. A red lobster is a cooked lobster. But it's her goose I hope gets cooked

as soon as Maine voters have a ballot box to stew it in.

5. Are we talking live or cooked? Because live ones aren't that bright red...





The next time you hear the song "Under the Sea", remember it was sung by a zombie lobster, so brightly red that he was clearly already cooked.

13. True

they are actually a composite of colors including greens and oranges and heaven knows what else. Most seem to be settling on brown. I never tried to identify them as one color before, and I grew up in lobsterland.

15. i'm jealous

The only live ones I've seen have been in tanks. The conditions in those tanks can be measured by how faded looking the colors are.

The predominant color always looked to be dark green, to me, and then all those other colors you mentioned kinda splashed around.

Our freshwater crayfish (a.k.a. "crawdads" in some areas here) look like miniature lobsters with much less variety in colors. There are colorful crayfish in the world, just not around here.

16. I've never seen freshwater crawdads that did

not look like New England lobsters, live or cooked. They all taste pretty good!

18. I believe "mottled" is the general description...

...although by using "brown" the OP evidently meant something else entirely.

8. At this point I am forced to respond to the responses

SUSAN COLLINS IS SELLING SHIT TO THOSE WHO VOTE FOR HER. YET, THEY KEEP VOTING FOR HER.

That's the end of my response.

14. Is this like that damn dress thing? What color do you see, red or brown?

I've lobstered in the Keys and they are closer to brown than the pink they look at the store or after you cook them.

24. Collins isn't serving up live lobster.

 

You overall point is correct. She is serving up hard core conservative shit. She is not a moderate.

28. You're right. I should have linked to the op to Earl G.

I hereby plead guilty to making this post about lobsters.

Actually, I didn't know that people were so interested in the color of pre and post cooked lobsters. But who am I to judge? After all, a lobster is a lobster is a lobster.

29. You couldn't be more wrong!

North American lobsters look and taste different from European lobsters. And Florida Lobsters, also called Crayfish are a fish of a different color. Pun fully intended.

I get your original point and approve.

But stay away from food metaphors. Smart people, like found on DU, take food seriously!

Thanks for a fun thread.
