It's not THAT expensive. There's a reason Red Lobster has been able to stay open, and that's selling faux-luxury to Lower-middle class Americans. I know you've probably heard it, but they were literally poverty food before some marketing stunt.

Depending on the market that year, they're like 25 bucks to enjoy a live one. How is that not doable even for a broke ass person?

I grew up summering in Maine.

>mad lobster buoys in the salt pond

It's a regional thing. If you live near where lobsters are harvested they're just another seafood option. Like oysters on the half shell. Not cheap, but not crazy expensive.

It only becomes a luxury in places far from the sea, where it's something exotic and expensive. This is typical. A few hundred years ago spices and tea from Asia were big prestige foods in the Western world, because they had to be shipped in from far away. Today in New York people pay top dollar for sushi made from fish flown in from the Tsukiji market. And a bottle of ordinary Bordeaux that would be commonly sold in a French supermarket commands more than double the supermarket price at more upscale wine shops. If you want to enjoy something nice from far away it's generally an expensive proposition.
