Giant Shrimp on Mars! -- Oops, make that Giant Shrimp for Mars. To celebrate NASA's discovery of evidence of a past "salty sea" on Mars, the seafood chain Long John Silver's is offering free shrimp ("one piece per customer") on May 10. For, uh, some reason: "Our faith in NASA has paid off. Their giant accomplishment calls for Giant Shrimp." Arrrrrrr!

Note: according to the LJS store locator, there are no franchises in New England -- the closest state is NY. So no shrimp for me...but why do I occasionally see one of their television commercials?
