Lucky Larry is a lobster who has a new lease on life!
The aptly nicknamed crustacean was rescued by Don MacKenzie of Connecticut. LL
Cool J was set to a tasty feast for a family, as the 81 year old lobster weighs 17 pounds.
MacKenzie paid The Dock Restaurant an undisclosed amount of money and took the old lobster to a secret location, where it will be impossible to catch him again.
MacKenzie explained why he wanted to release Larry:
It takes seven years for him to even become a lobster big enough to keep. For a lobster to live this long and avoid lobster traps, nets, lobster pots … he doesn't deserve a bib and butter
This lobster has seen World War I, World War II, seen the landing on the moon and the Red Sox win the World Series. He's made it this far in life.
He deserves to live
We don't know how Larry saw all that underwater but we get the point! LOLz!
We hope Larry lives 80 MORE years of happiness!
