Live on, Leon

by Brian Allgar

“An American man brought a live lobster from his local supermarket home in 2021 as an experiment,
to see if he could keep it alive, and to his amazement, his pet, Leon the Lobster, is still thriving—
now… he admits the crustacean must have a special place in his heart.”

Leon the Lobster’s a
Pet in a shell.

Close to his master’s heart,
Let’s hope that Leon will
Not find a place in his
Stomach as well.
