Being a Boston girl, my mom said I should know how to crack my own lobster so I gave it a shot. First you flip it upside down so that the stomach part is up, then you run a knife from the neck (??) to the tail. Then crack on either side of the tail to help crack the shell, then pull out the tail intact if you can (it takes mad skills!). Then crack the claws for the rest of the meat. yea, can you believe it? for how expensive a freaking lobster is, about only 20% of it is edible lobster meat.

check out those skills!!!
