What do you get when you cross a crustacean with a crotch-rocket? No, this isn't the set up for a bad joke. It's actually a thing, thanks to Taiwanese artist Huang Mingbo, who created this amazing mini-motorcycle out of lobster shells. The sculpture came into being after Mingbo finished polishing off lobster at a seminar on cooking in Fuzhou, China. He wondered what he could do with the brightly colored shell, and thus, the lobster motorcycle was born.
It's too small to take for a ride, but we love the idea of turning food trash into art. In a way, it's kind of like what the bottom-dwelling creatures do—except instead of art, they turn seafloor garbage into delicious, delicious flesh.
Just don't show this to Sebastian.
