With Coleslaw, Rolls, and Butter
My wife noticed that on the new Maine State license plate the lobster depicted on the plate is red. Live lobsters in the Gulf of Maine are normally brown (though rare specimens have a blue shade), so for a lobster to be red it means that it has been cooked! Therefore, the Maine state license plate is an incomplete depiction. Along with the red lobster they must also include the complete table spread - rolls & butter, coleslaw, chowder, and a slice of blueberry pie.
