Lobsters are considered an expensive menu item in New England, USA, where I previously lived.  Prior to our lifetimes, lobster was considered a mark of poverty or as a food for indentured servants or lower members of society in Maine, Massachusetts, and the Canadian Maritimes, and servants specified in employment agreements that they would not eat lobster more than twice per week. Lobster was also commonly served in prisons, much to the displeasure of inmates. American lobster was initially deemed worthy only of being used as fertilizer or fish bait, and until well into the 20th century, it was not viewed as more than a low-priced canned staple food.

Actually, YES, I did know that.

 

Something to go along with that, DYK - not only do lobsters eat the "crap of the ocean" (they are waste/carrion eaters) .... so are shrimp, crabs and a few other "delicacies" from the ocean.

 

 

 

 

Only Jehovah could make a creature that could eat the waste of others and turn it into such sweet, tasty food.

When I worked in a Chinese Restaurant, I learned the secret of making lobster sauce. The owner bought all the fish heads from the nearest grocery store and cooked it into a broth. 

 

Another Chinese restaurant secret: Real General Tso is coated with water chestnut flour.  I mean the chicken - never met the General himself.

In 1943, Little Lulu was the advertising Cartoon-face for Kleenex and helped  popularize its use as a disposable handkerchief. Kimberly-Clark was established in the 1800s and made a different paper based product that was used for bandaging in WWI, et al.

Strabismus=misaligned  eyes, aka cross-eyed. Descartes is said to have preferred women with strabismus.

 

It is believed that ancient Mayans held an object in front of their baby's face to promote strabismus. Also, upper class Mayans were reported to have a board presses upon their infant's  forehead to render it flattened.

In some sign languages the left side is for the devil, while you sign Jehovah to your right.
