I saw this and immediately thought of the time one of my profs told us about this fellow who had a pet lobster he liked to take on walks because, “It does not bark, and it knows the secrets of the deep.”  I don’t recall how this fact fit into the actual lecture, but apparently the guy’s name was Gérard de Nerval and he was a rather troubled French poet who ended up committing suicide in 1855.  (See?  Wikipedia is useful!)
