wgme.com – Lobsters may not have their own emoji yet, but they do have a day all to themselves.
This summer, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution designating September 25th as National Lobster Day.
Maine Senators Susan Collins and Angus King led the resolution.
National Lobster Day is meant to recognize the economic and cultural importance of the species.
Lobster is one of the most valuable catches in the U.S., with approximately 150 million pounds landed at a value of more than $500 million each year.
This is just an excuse for me to post pics of the Lobster Roll I had from Luke’s Lobster, soooooooo good. I think I know what I’m going to be dining on for dinner tonight, i’m going to punish myself like Cartman did with some of Sebastian’s distant crustacean relatives. Also don’t forget to read Xander’s great Lobster post.
