For the foodies out there, Lobsters are hurtin’ as a mysterious bacterial disease is eating away at their shells. This is largely affecting lobsters in the NorthEast, so maybe the trip to Maine will have to wait.

Disturbingly enough, these lobsters are still servable. The disease affects the shell, but supposedly the meat is still safe to eat.

Some researchers are saying that this bacteria may be a chemical byproduct of industrial sources.

Once so delicious. Now so sad. And so so gross.
