Fisherman Catches Rare 1-In-100-Million Albino Lobster

May 4, 2017


This is a shot of the albino lobster caught by Irish fisherman Charlie O'Malley off the coast of Achill Island in western Ireland. It currently resides at The Achill Experience, an aquarium and museum in the area. It's estimated only one in 100-million lobsters are born albino. And, as staggering as those odds are, they're still better than you chance of winning the Powerball lottery (1 in 292,201,338). And, as staggering as those odds are, your chance of winning is 0 if you don't play, which is why I always tithe at least 80% of my earnings to the state lotto system. "How's that working out for you?" God will provide. "Have you won anything?" Two dollars here and there. "You know what George Michael says." It would be nice if I could touch your body? "No -- you gotta have faith, faith, faith." Oh sure, that too, but let's get back to the body touching thing.

Thanks to Dev, who wants to know if lobster color affects the succulentness of the tail meat.

    OK, we've seen the 1 in 100 million white one, the blue one, the orange one and the Chimera one... What's left?
