Free Larry

What, no butter? A man bought a 17-pound lobster at a Connecticut restaurant, but rather than donning a bib, the man took the crustacean out of the tank and released it into Long Island Sound. "Lucky Larry," as the lobster had been dubbed by local children, was estimated to be about 80 years old, based on its size.

As "Lucky Larry" was lowered into the water, "Luckier Lou," a Long Island Sound harbor seal, gave a happy bark and thanked the man for the lobster meal.
