i'm in a meeting at work right now. this guy from a company mentioned tom ellis and it turns out that this girl who works here is friends with him and his wife. he brought up this story:"In Massachusetts, lobsters have a true friend in Arlene Ellis, the wife of New England Cable Newsman Tom Ellis, who went beyond mere words to help the sea creatures this summer.
During a swanky Cape Cod clambake, Ellis grabbed five about-to-be-boiled lobsters out of a pot, threw them in her car, drove to a nearby harbor and returned them to the sea.
"They were saying, 'Take me back to the beach,'" she told the Boston Herald.
"She was yelling, 'I'm saving the lobsters, I'm saving the lobsters,'" said a witness to the chase that ensued. "But the funny part was, her husband Tom was sitting at a table with about ten people eating his lobster and pretending nothing was going on. It was the most bizarre scenario ever."
It didn't end there, though. Some 90 minutes later, Ellis returned with a fistful of dollars and caused another scene, going table to table offering partygoers cash for their crustaceans."
