    I really love lobster. I can't get enough of 'em. Problem is they are really crunchy and when I eat them they cut up my gums. Any hints as to how I should prepare them? They have a wonderful taste but that problem with being crunchy and cutting up my gums is beginning to turn me away from them the same way clams did. Suggestions?

    Stick to bones. They won't cut your gums. Hey! And stop crapping on the sidewalk!

    You need to eat porcupine for a while, then lobster won't seem to effect your gums so much.

    But isn't that where all the vitamins, minerals, and other healthy stuff for you is? Wife says I should try to cook them in a pressure cooker. Didn't think of that!
