Martha Stewart Shared A Pretty Dark Lobster Cooking "Hack" And I Feel Weird

"If you were going to be boiled alive, wouldn’t you like to have a drink first?”

Martha Stewart, everyone's favorite cooking mogul, shared what might just be the darkest cooking "tip" I've ever come across...

Comedy Central

During a Facebook live video with Jennifer Garner, Stewart reveals her special "tip" for boiling lobsters alive...

“I boil mine for about 15 minutes," said Stewart. "I put them in boiling water with vodka or tequila. I give them a drink."

When Garner asked why she would do that, Stewart replied, "Well, if you were going to be boiled alive, wouldn’t you like to have a drink first?"

"About half a cup of vodka to the pot of water," explained Stewart.

People obviously had opinions about this — and they questioned whether or not this is actually a more humane way of cooking lobsters. Some people (like PETA) were disturbed:

And others simply laughed at her "tip" — implying that the logic was faulty at best:

To make things even weirder, it turns out that Stewart has killed other animals after feeding them vodka, too.

In an episode of Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party, Stewart, while discussing if she'd ever killed a chicken before, said “I fed it some vodka, and then I cut off its head.”

(I think their reactions speak for all of us...)

So yeah, I'll just leave this information here. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
