Dario Moreno, Lobster King

I just knew you would want to see this press release & photo I just purchased of 1950/60s singer Dario Moreno eating a lobster. The back of the photo reads:

Singer Dario Moreno, now appearing in one of the music-halls in Paris, has been crowned "Biggest Lobster Eater in the World" during a friendly competition in a famous restaurant in Paris, after he succeeded to eat 6 lobsters of 800 grammes each. Dario Moreno with his crown and one of the lobsters.

6 lobsters at 800 grammes each....so that's 4800 grammes which is like 3 or four hectares and a couple pfennigs left over, if my calculations are correct.

If you would like to listen to some of Dario's music as you reflect upon the awesomeness of the photo, you can find some here.
