Comments: No Brain No Pain?

1) We murder 4 lobsters annually, a Christmas tradition. We get a tasty dinner, the lobster gets a quick and painless death.
2) The squealing is just the air rushing out of the sealed shell. They don't even have vocal cords, they communicate with pheromones.
3) If a lobster, or other delicious animal doesn't feel pain, would PETA still care?

1) Your choice.
2) Lobsters don't have vocal chords. The squealing, when it happens, is due to heated air escaping from the shell.
3) Lobster meat tastes great, especially when dipped in butter. :-)

Of COURSE lobsters feel pain. Pain is a survival mechanism that alerts the animal to tissue damage.

But I don't care what they feel, because they're below me on the food chain.
