Uber's list of strange Lost & Found items is surprisingly funny

It's the worst.

There you are, being all responsible on the weekend calling Uber instead of driving around town drunk to the tune of 11 craft beers which didn't even taste good. That's what you do now that you're an adult, is let someone else drive. Which is all a perfect scenario, except for when you wake up in a hazed stupor only to realize your pockets magically emptied themselves on the way from point A to point B. 

You done lost your shit.

It happens all too often, and Uber keeps track. Recently, the company dropped its Lost & Found Index of things most commonly forgotten, 50 of the most unique items ever left behind for whatever reason and what cities are the worst at keeping tabs on their stuff.

Seriously though, a lobster? Who does that!?
