70 Year Old Lobster

Serious Eats asks its readers whether they would be willing to eat this 11 pound, 70-year old lobster that is currently available for purchase at New York's Oceana restaurant for $275. Now I'm no bleeding heart vegan, but even I would be reluctant to turn this elderly Pinchy into my dinner. Setting aside that at his age and size he'll probably taste like chewy cardboard, there's something undignified and unfair about having such a heroic lobster that has managed to outwit predators for 70+ years meet his end in a pot of boiling water.

How about you dear G Luxe readers? Would you be willing to feast on Pinchy?
