This is just so insane it might actually be true: An ad that popped up on Boston Craigslist yesterday sounded a scream for help, along with several photos of the menacing black bag:
HELP!!! LOBSTERS ARE SCARING US!!!! (Allston )
My husband and I have a few lobsters but we're both VERY scared of them. They're ugly and scary looking. They're in that bag, I tried to see if they'd fit in the pot - and was using a stick. I wish we could get a pic picture for you but they are alive moving and we're scared to open the bag.
We don't care if you're a man or woman, older or younger. We just want to be able to eat them.
We're looking for someone who can come over, and prepare them for us. In return, we hope you'll stay and have dinner or lunch with us and make new friends. We're sane, just scardy cats. We live in the Allston village area.
We'll provide anything needed. You just tell us what since we've never made lobsters before.
