    The Swiss Federal Council issued an order this week banning cooks in Switzerland from placing live lobsters into pots of boiling water — joining a few other jurisdictions that have protections for the decapod crustaceans. Switzerland’s new measure stipulates that beginning March 1, lobsters must be knocked out — either by electric shock or “mechanical destruction” of the brain — before boiling them, according to Swiss public broadcaster RTS.

    Would a boiling pot of water not have the same affect as "being excessively tazed"?

    I always heard that quickly submerging them head-first in boiling water cooks the brain before they can feel much of anything. Sounds about as humane as it gets to me.

    The key is head-first though, keeping the claws and other body parts clear until the head is submerged.
