"A Gloucester blogger admitted yesterday that he knew a group of lobstermen were only joking around about trying to catch lobsters that were tossed back in the ocean late last week by some Buddhists seeking good karma. On Aug. 3, the group of Buddhists went to Gloucester and purchased 534 lobsters from a wholesaler and dumped them back into the sea in a prayer ceremony. The headline of dock owner Joe Ciaramitaro’s Monday entry on his website,, was, 'The Crew of the Degelyse Sets Out to Catch Liberated Buddhist Lobsters,' accompanied by a video showing the lobstermen talking about trying to rehaul the same lobsters that were dumped back into the sea."
