I read the article and thought it was great...but have never cooked a lobster, nor do I plan to. I have boiled a few hundred pounds of crawfish though, pretty much the same cooking method as far as I can discern. Actually, my cousin (in Jolly London now) suggested I eat crawfish with butter like you would with a lobster, but it's such a major hassle, finding forks small enough to spear the crawfish tails, then de-veining them and don't even get me started on the etiquette of cutting them into even smaller pieces when they're already pretty tiny. It all seemed kinda twee.
Oh, and there is no way you're going to convince me that I should kill all the crawfish with a knife before boiling them.
