Yeah, I feel a lot worse eating tasty lamb than I do eating lobster. I've tried to cut back on my beef, lamb, and pork consumption since they're higher organisms than poultry or fish.
With respect to lobster, I've heard it's actually more humane to just toss them in boiling water than it is to give them the lobotomy first. Also easier on your sharp knives.
