I was just wondering what most peoples thoughts were on boiling lobster and eating foie gras. I have never eaten lobster as I have always thought it to be cruel and I don not eat foie gras either. My mother in law is an animal lover and won't buy anything that is tested on animals but she eats foie gras and lobster and my fiance wants foie gras on out menu for our wedding next summer ( I do not want this and think it will be a wasted dish anyway as I think most people will not choose it). Anyway I have been googling about lobsters and apparantely the squealing they do when being bolied is actually gases leaving their bodies not them squealing. Also, scientists say they don't feel pain as they have no brain. I was just wondeirng what the general consensus is?
