So Holley was busy creating the Lobster Benedict with Saffron Hollandaise Sauce and told me to get the hell out of the kitchen. I asked if she needed Herman and Sherman, or if I could take them into her living room for a bit.
And this is what happened…
Herman & Sherman
I'm not 100% sure what caused this battle, but from what I could gather, Herman got together with the girl that Sherman was crushing on. Typical lobster love triangle.
(Sherman is in the rectangular corner, while Herman is on the circular plate.)
Sherman lashes out in a raging barrage of wild and careless thrusts.
As brothers who had trained together all their lives, they were pretty evenly matched. Sherman blocks a dangerous attack and counters with his own.
But then, the lobster duel takes a sudden change when Herman catches and snaps Sherman's spear.
Herman delivers a death blow!
As is tradition in lobster duels, Herman dismantles Sherman's body/armor to symbolize to all that the girl is his. Some say it's barbaric, but it is the way of the lobster duel.
Sadly, Herman met his own demise the following day. At my hands. Thankfully, both Herman & Sherman tasted delicious.
Clearly, my mom didn't tell me not to play with my food. …Or I just chose to ignore those instructions.
