If you have some time to murder, visit this link from Time Magazine. I haven’t had time (ahem) to visit all the links, but I did click on “Top Ten Fashion Must-Haves for 2008.” Naturally, I don’t have any of them.
But one of my favorite collections, by far, was the number ten on the list of “Top Ten Animal Stories”–Lobsters on the Lam!
Here’s the story:
“Run, lobsters, run! In October, more than a dozen jumbo lobsters gave new meaning to the phrase “late-night supermarket run” when they high-tailed it out of a grocery store and headed down the street. The determined crustaceans had crawled their way out of insecure cages, scurried across the supermarket floor and exited via the front door. Passersby alerted police, who apprehended the would-be entrées and gave them to an animal shelter.”
Let’s just hope that grocery store wasn’t in Kansas or someplace miles from the sea! Me, I’d have marched them down to the beach and set those crustaceans free!
