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.

You’ve been thunderstruck: A computer security website claims that Iran’s nuclear facilities suffered a recent cyber attack that not only shut down its computers but played rock band AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” at full volume in the middle of the night.

The cyber attack was seen as a particular jab at Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is more of a Led Zeppelin fan.

Our invitation must have been lost in the mail: North Korean state TV has confirmed what had been rumored for weeks: Dear Leader Kim Jong Un has married. His bride is the young woman seen with him at recent events and identified as “Comrade Ri Sol Ju.”

Ri reportedly answered Kim’s ad that read in part: “Young despot seeks SAF. Must like the cries of hunger from comrades, military parades, nuclear tests and walking in the rain.”
