Lobster Pound in Bar Harbor Porn


As a born and bred Maritimer, I find it kind of silly to eat lobster in fancy-ass expensive restaurants. I mean, you're trying to look civilized while wearing a plastic bib.

Lobster is not high-falutin' food, it's just priced that way. Lobster is messy! It's meant to be eaten outside at a picnic table covered in newspaper, wearing old clothes because you get splattered with lobster juice, and you need band-aids, because you'll probably get a cut or two cracking the shell.

Now, the lobster pound... this is how to eat lobster! Steamed lobster, corn on the cob, coleslaw and a drink for $20, and plastic tablecloths!

I completely agree - I was born in the Maritimes & lived there until I was 14 and my grandfather was a fisherman, so we had an abundance of all types of seafood all the time. I always thought it was so odd that people would get all gussied up to go to fancy schmancy places to eat lobster.

They are rather drippy, aren't they? We used to catch crab, boil them and eat them out on Long Island. Not quite as messy but mmm, good!
