We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Not that he needs one. There's a line waiting down the sidewalk for supper at Maro's, for his simple menu of grilled shrimp and lobster. And for his Bulldog cocktails. It's like a rustic Cape Cod seafood joint.
It's not our Yankee lobster - it's the lobster that grows down there. Yes, you order by the kilo.

If I may - I have a thing about anthropomorphic food animals happily doing what ever on the menu cover. It just seems weird that they would happily go to their fate as food.
Is that weird?
Having said that, I had the mostest awesome real Gulf shrimp cocktail today - jumbo shrimp, fresh that where flown in special by our hosts and a cocktail sauce made from Zatarans Crab Boil and other spices.
