Patrick Stewart cooks up delight in a lobster costume

Nobody turn on the hot water. Former "Star Trek: The Next Generation" Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, aka actor Patrick Stewart, dressed up for Halloween as a lobster, and tweeted a photo of himself waving his pincers while inside a bathtub.

Stewart's fans were hungry to share -- in just a few minutes, the photo was retweeted more than 30,000 times.

And the fan comments were worth the price of admission.

Stewart was far from the only celebrity to go all out for Halloween, with multiple stars going the Miley Cyrus route, and the TODAY anchors reaching back to classic television characters.
