After seeing a lobster during a research trip in Narragansett Bay, delusional marine biologist Jamie France thought that he was the first person to discover the species.
“No one will believe this,” France reported, having no idea that a lobster is a very well-known animal. “This animal’s large claws and thin riveted body are completely unheard of.”
“They’ll write about this day in biology textbooks,” he continued, totally unaware that the crustacean has been known about for centuries. “I better bring this creature back because, unless they see it for themselves, no one will ever believe I discovered such a new and novel species.”
“I will call it a boklop,” said France, not knowing that it is already called a lobster.
