I think they just throw the lobster in a paper bag. At least that's what I remember from when my parents would bring a lobster home when I was younger.

You could stuff it inside your shirt to keep it warm like a puppy. If you were stealing it you could stuff it down your pants.

You could always use the cardbord container they furnish for lobsters I suppose, but where is the fun in that?

Why not just throw them head first into the boiling water?

I try to re-enact the scene from National Lampoon's Vacation where Clark is dragging the dog behind the car.

In a paper bag. We take it home, jam a knife in its brain, then proceed to cut it up in pieces.

that's they only way to get them fresh though.

It's oh so delicious. The fat just melts into the lobster meat, plus the brains and inards have a delictable sweetness that is unmatched in other foods.
