Estimated to be at least 80 years old, 17-pound "Larry the Lobster" was purchased at a restaurant by Don MacKenzie of Niantic, Connecticut, who said he just couldn't stand to see the massive creature end up on someone's dinner plate.
"It takes seven years for him to even become a lobster big enough to keep," said MacKenzie. "For a lobster to live this long and avoid lobster traps, nets, lobster pots ... he doesn't deserve a bib and butter."
Nope. He deserves his own YouTube video. Mission accomplished!
