The key word is SUPPOSEDLY! Turns out the photo was posted in a closed Facebook group and then shared widely, with local TV stations from Maine to Florida posting the photo. It was just a photo-shopped picture.

So you'll just have to do with blue, yellow, red, calico and albino lobsters. Purple just isn't happening.
