Lobsters feel no pain 

So say the results of a recently released Norwegian study.

Now, lobsters are a big deal here in Maine. I mean, fill in the blank here: Live ____ Lobsters. Unless you're Canadian and get yours from Nova Scotia, you probably thought "Maine." I have even seen signs outside restaurants in Paris advertising "Homards du Maine."

So when some people protest the use of lobsters as food, a few Mainers might see it as a minor annoyance, but most just roll their eyes and snort.

I wonder what PETA will think of this study. If the lobsters aren't suffering pain, then they'll have to come up with a new argument.

Besides, don't they realize that lobster meat is really tasty? I mean, come on!
