Of Course Lobsters Feel Pain

I mean, if you don’t like lobsters you don’t really need any excuse, more for me. If you must there’s always Leviticus (better not see you wearing wool and cotton at the same time) or an allergy (my allergy to Bell Peppers is very real, I also don’t like them). To pretend that shooting cows …
