It has been awhile since I’ve had a post for the “Random Stuff You Find on the Golf Course” feature here, but it might be my favorite topic. I’ve found everything from porno DVD’s to snow shovels in trees to toothbrushes. Today’s edition is brought to you by local golf buddy Brian Pointelin.
Cue the B52’s song “Rock Lobster”
Above is a lobster Brian found just off the 18th fairway at Mountain View Golf Course. How did it get there? It may have walked from the nearest beach, only 688 miles. It may have been brought inland by a swallow. It would have to be a large swallow though. Perhaps it escaped from one of those “live” lobster cases in the fish section at the grocery store. That’s more likely. I wonder if this lobster sacrificed itself so the other lobsters that escaped with it could make it.
That’s the interesting thing about random stuff you find on the golf course. There has to be some story behind how and why it ended up where it did.
