Lobster-Eating Contest

I wish I were there at this lobster-eating contest:
KENNEBUNK, Maine -- America's top speed-eater wolfed down 38 lobsters in 12 minutes Saturday to win the World Lobster Eating Contest.

Sonya Thomas, of Alexandria, Va., won $500 and a trophy belt for her efforts, consuming 9.76 pounds of lobster meat.
I hope that belt had several notches!

I just love lobster. When we lived in New Hampshire we went all the time to this little hole-in-the-wall place where you could get the tail meat from too-small lobsters for cheap. Slather them in butter and pop 'em in your mouth... mmmm.....
