Cooking lobster can be intimidating: not only do the things looks like weird prehistoric sea creatures, but they’re also still alive when you bring them into your kitchen. While I can’t help with the first part (evolution!), I can teach you how to cook lobster fearlessly.
If you’re squeamish, put the critter to sleep by standing it on its head, tucking down the tail, and stroking it. Before you can even crack open Goodnight Moon, the lobster will be in a sleep-like state, and you can drop it into a pot of boiling salted water. If you’re not so squeamish, just stab it in the head right before throwing it in the pot. Either way, you'll have fresh lobster in just 10 minutes. If you are smart, you’ll time this all with a batch of Cheddar Bay Biscuits coming out of the oven. Be smart.
