Unfortunately, the courier service lost the two machines and the animal rights people had to look the other way as volunteers killed hundreds of lobster in boiling water for hungry supporters of the resource centre.
Simon Buckhaven is a British inventor who came up with a device that electrocutes lobsters as a humane way of killing them for our thermidors. Huh, Julia Child had a device for that - it was called a big-ass and sharp knife.
Anyway, it seems PETA wanted to help a non-profit in Tucson, AZ and bought two of these machines and flew Buckhaven and his wife on PETA's dime to demonstrate the technology at the fundraiser.
Except . . . Brown didn't do squat for them, so don't ask.
And they boiled the suckers all the same.
