This was back in 2011 when these Bhuddist monks would come to Gloucester to buy 500 lobsters and release them back to the ocean symbolic for good karma.
This is the post from 2011:
To make clear the following is only satire and I’ll take responsibility for people not from Gloucester or the the waterfront misunderstanding.
I was wrong to assume that because I predominantly write our hyperlocal blog for our Cape Ann residents that people would understand how preposterous the notion that you could have time to move all the lobster gear even if they knew where the lobsters were released and to set it and for those lobsters which were probably miles away from that location would ever get caught.
What I am happy for is that the releasing of the lobster story which would have been a simple story largely forgotten by now has gotten huge legs and all the positives of Buddhism are highlighted. For that I am grateful.
Receiving the coordinates of where the lobsters were released by Buddhist monks, the boys went out yesterday and hauled the lobster traps they set all over that ocean bottom and caught exactly 534 lobsters, the precise number the monks released.
