Getaway Cooler

Lobster getaway cooler Lobster getaway cooler (Photo from Mark, who helped rescue Nick)

The cooler that carried Nick the Giant Lobster (whose escape from a supermarket was the subject of last week's podcast) to Maine.

Nick was apparently also known as Larry for a brief period. Toni (who flew Nick to Portland for his release into the Atlantic) packed Nick into this cooler for the trip. Toni's brother Mark helped speed Nick on his way by decorating the cooler with help from his 11-year-old nephew Jason (who decided Larry was a more fitting name than Nick). Thanks Mark for sending us this photo!

What is the music around 13:00 in? I'd love to look it up. Thanks to anyone who may know!

I sure hope the podcast addresses how releasing animals (and plants) back into the wild can introduce or spread disease into the wild populations. Then there is the issue of invasive species. Think Burmese Pythons in the Everglades....

I love the lobster with the top hat! Hope Nick/Larry lives the rest of his life frolicking in the water.
