People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has asked Maine officials for permission to build a five-foot tombstone to memorialize the site of an August truck crash that left thousands of lobsters scattered on the highway.

PETA says it would like to remember the "countless sensitive crustaceans" killed in the Aug. 22 crash in Brunswick, Maine, USA Today reports. The truck contained 7,000 pounds of lobster and backed up traffic for hours after its contents spilled onto the road.

The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries after, according to police, the vehicle likely hydroplaned in bad weather.

The epitaph of the gravestone would read, "In Memory of the Lobsters Who Suffered and Died at This Spot" and encourage people to "Try Vegan."

The tragedy is that the lobsters died in a truck accident and not in pots of boiling water in people's kitchens.

Someone should put up a memorial there to all of the pet rocks and animal crackers that have died over the years.

PETA got the Animal Cracker makers to change their boxes so that the animals are roaming free in the picture instead of laying in cages for the Barnum and Bailey Circus. Seriously.


Cause we all know that lions don't eat zebras in the savannas of Africa, and that all these animals just live together in peace and harmony.

Will there be a lobster bisque competition at the memorial?
