Did Arnold Schwarzenegger have an affair with a lobster too? LOL!

This monster of a lobster was found by New England Lobster Co. in San Francisco. who decided it was too big and shocking to be someone's dinner.

This dude weighed in at 18 pounds and is estimated to be 75 years old!! Firm's bookkeeper, Jennifer Vargas decided eating the king of the lobsters wasn't right.

"This seemed like a [lousy] way to go. A lot of the customers were interested in him - the problem was they didn't have a pot big enough,"

explained Vargas.

Luckily her boss agreed. Now this old beast and his massive claws live in the New York Aquarium, run by the Wildlife Conservation Society.
