LOBSTER
By Ian Mackinnon
While Ian bakes some scones he relates what happened to him earlier in the day. A rich American tourist and his girlfriend docked in their fancy yacht. The man wanted to buy a lobster; he was loud and obviously trying to impress. Ian decided to take him down a peg and asked an outrageous price for the lobster. The American swallowed hard, but paid the full price in order not to lose face in front of his girlfriend. Ian is still chuckling about it.
