Respect your lobster

Chung Lee Loves Lobsters

Once a month, Chung Lee buys a live lobster from Bizzer and Wally's mother. The boys are curious about Chung Lee, so they follow him to see what he does. They are astounded when, instead of cooking and eating the lobster, he releases it into the ocean. The reason, he tells the boys, is to atone for the lobsters he killed while he was a cook.

While this story could have been told with fewer words, the sentiment is palpable.

For anyone who likes lobsters.
