Delivery: Live Lobsters

So I was innocently websurfing a few minutes ago when a co-worker approached my desk with a giant box addressed to me. It's contents were a mystery -- until I opened it, obviously, to find TWO LIVE LOBSTERS. Um, hello. 

The package was from "Linda Bean's Perfect Maine," a new seafood brand headed by the granddaughter of LL Bean. Basically, Bean's lobsters are shipped directly from wharves in Port Clyde and Vinylhaven, tagged with their source and her brand name, along with an assurance that they were caught in the wild using sustainable practices. The brand is "positioning the Maine lobster industry for the future," according to the accompanying press materials. 

Much to my chagrin, I won't be home enough over the next 48 hours to cook and enjoy them myself. So, another co-worker has so generously offered to take on the task for me -- we here at PHX headquarters sacrifice so much for each other.
