Giant lobster catches man off California coast

The Buzz: Giant lobster catches man off California coast
What do you do when you’re hungry — head to Chuy’s? Stop at Whole Foods or the H-E-B? Or maybe you jump into Lady Bird Lake and catch dinner with your bare hands.

The Associated Press reports that Huntington Beach, Calif., resident Joseph Ali recently took a dive for dinner after closing his dad’s business, Zack’s Pier Plaza, for the night.

“I’ve been doing this for about seven or eight years,” 27-year-old Ali told the Orange County Register. Ali suspects onlookers thought he was drunk when he dove off the pier, according to the AP, but he surfaced holding an 18-pound spiny lobster that was likely older than he was (estimates suggested the creature was at least 30 years of age).

Ali was swimming 15 feet below the calm surface and chasing a smaller lobster when the larger critter actually grabbed onto him which, frankly, would have led me to lose my appetite (if not my lunch).
