The wonder of irony

On a lighter note than my last entry … I came across this snippet on the BBC website, and almost fell of my chair laughing.

Question - What did the Communist MEP Sahra Wagenknecht say when she was caught eating lobster?

Answer – “I’m fighting for a society in which everyone can afford to eat lobster.”

There must be dozens of slogans that could be used in such a campaign. For example:

"Crustaceans for common people"

"Prawns for the proletariat"

Fight the good fight comrade!

Is the cooking of a lobster alive not an infringement on its rights?
