Black has made a name for himself as the preeminent ranter, unafraid to take on touchy political issues, personal behavior and even the food he likes and dislikes. While Lewis Black may seem like a joyless human being, there are plenty of things that put a smile on his face. And one of those things is apparently stopping for a delicious lobster roll when he's visiting Maine.
