Some really, really good things are coming out of the US recession.
For example, "lobsters cost about $2.80 to $4 a pound in Boston. Last year they were $4.50 to $5 per pound. On the North Shore and Cape Cod, lobsters cost about $2.50 to $2.75 per pound.
"Go right on down to your local harbor and knock on the back of a boat and say, 'I'd like to buy some lobsters.' This is the time to buy them. A 1 pound lobster off the back of a vessel is cheaper than an ice cream cone," Feeney said."
Lobsters cheaper than ice cream!? Where do I sign up?
Hat tip to Lauren for this find.
