EvilGentleman: 10th Aug 2006 - 00:44 GMT

I remember living in P.E.I. when I was about 6, and this woman at the store was upset because she was so poor, all she had to eat was lobster. And I also recall my mother saying that the locals will never serve a guest lobster, because it was a sign of shame to serve houseguests something so cheap. Kraft Dinner with chopped wieners was considered a step up.

My grandfather used to tell me that he would try to trade his lobster sandwich for ham sandwiches. He alwasy had to throw in some cookies to make the trade fair.
