Icon23 Lobster dinner myth debunked

It’s Halloween weekend at the University of Massachusetts. Students are preparing their costumes and planning their weekends. Some are even thinking as far ahead as Monday night, when the UMass dining commons will host their annual lobster dinner.

But who pays for all of the crawling crustaceans?

“Everyone knows that Bill Cosby donates lobsters to UMass every Halloween. It’s a UMass tradition,” said sophomore Audrey Coulter. “I assume it’s because he’s a UMass alum. He just wants to give us lobsters for a happy Halloween.”

But while some are avid believers in the Cosby theory, others are skeptical and suspicious that Cosby does not actually have any involvement with the annual lobster dinner.
