The lobster's leash reads (in French):
"I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don’t bark..."
Supposedly the French poet, Gérard de Nerval, would walk his pet lobster with a ribbon. This was his reasoning for adopting a lobster as opposed to a dog!
I recently discovered that Thibault, the lobster, is mentioned in Patti Smith & Sam Shepard's 1971 play 'Cowboy Mouth'.
