Perhaps they should try a more gentle though medieval method and boil them in oil (butter).
Actually, according to the article, they have to be flown in live in seawater.

What is really upsetting this is about Switzerland, is that they have always tended not to take anyone's side, EVER, and now this...now we have no country representing the 'no taking sides' of every debate, because they've clearly taken a side. Who knew they'd take the side of a crustacean!
Yeah, whose looking out for the innocent vegetables?!!!

Language Warning!

The question that begs asking is, "What then, is the legal way to kill a lobster in Geneva?"

Stick a knife behind the head into the neck, if they have a neck.

Probably depends on the kind of Lobster. Do Rocklobsters have necks?

Caseydog, ha haha hahahaha

Laws on how you make lobsters in your home. One more way for the police and lawmakers to invite themselves to dinner! Yeah.

"knock knock, yes maam, we hear you are serving lobsters tonight and we came to observe."

How consenting adults cook in the privacy of their kitchens is their own business. Swiss politicians need to be more like ours, and focus on what consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms.

Caseydog, I was thinking that exact same thing. Except our police are more invasive than is comfortable.

I doubt the police really care what consenting adults do in their kitchens or bedrooms. It is the politicians.

In Switzerland, I doubt the police are going to waste any time trying to catch someone boiling a live lobster in their home kitchens. This law is mostly going to change how restaurants cook lobster.

BTW, I hope everyone on DC knows that the most humane way to boil a live lobster is to plunge it quickly and head first into rapidly boiling water. If you slowly submerge it tail first, or the water isn't hot enough, the lobster is going to feel it.

The knife through the head thing also dispatches the lobster instantly -- well, as long as you do it in one quick thrust.
