Almost every cartoon, at some point, has a lobster pinch someone, causing immense pain for the victim. Then you go to a restaurant and the lobster's claws in the tank are rubber-banded shut. The message is clear. It must be a brutal experience to get pinched.
But have you ever actually seen someone get pinched? Is it as bad as advertised? Naturally, the man to get to the bottom of this is Coyote Peterson while on a trip to Maine. He's the man behind such ill-conceived stunts as being stung by bullet ants and lion fish.
The episode starts harmlessly. He tries a couple of lobsters that don't do much damage. Peterson begins to postulate maybe we've overblown how much it hurts to tangle with a lobster. Maybe the lobster's bark is far worse than its bite.
