Inspired by the wide world of weird vending machines -- it seems only natural to highlight this glorious find: The Lobster-Claw Live Lobster-Vending Machine!

But the best part about this concept is the inevitable question: what happens once you've "won" your live lobster? The machine does not supply any kind of bag or box, but apparently in Osaka once you've won, you can ask the arcade manager for a baggie. If you can't find the arcade manager? Well, you're out of luck. It's like winning an iPhone -- hey, you've won an $80 phone bill! Or winning a car -- here's your bundle of insurance payments!

These "games" are located all over -- from Maine lobster country to Osaka, Japan -- proving that irony transcends cultures.
