So This Snail Goes Into A Bar . . .

Snail Yoga

There’s nothing like a good snail joke or amusing gastropod anecdote to liven up even the dullest party. Here are two of my favorites:

• A snail and a turtle are crossing the road from opposite directions.  They crash.  The police come and interview the snail.  “What happened?” asks the officer.

“I don’t know,” says the snail. “It all happened so fast!”

• A guy is home reading the paper and hears a knock on his door.  He opens the door only to find a little snail on his porch.  He picks up the snail and throws it as far as he can.

A year later the guy is home reading his paper and there’s a loud knock.  He opens the door and there’s the snail again.  In an exasperated voice the snail says,

“WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT!?”

Word Of The Day: Gastropod (GAS-tro-pod) noun. A class within the phylum Mollusca which includes snails, slugs, and (my personal favorites) the semi-slugs.

    Frenchmen like escargot (Snails). Do they eat slugs?? I should rephrase that because of course they eat slugs. Do they know they are related? And what do Krauts eat that’s totally disgusting besides French food??

    Is a semi slug a Hollowpoint .45?

  3. Bill says:

    Unless drowned in garlic sauce, snails are pretty tasteless.

    Joe, I don’t know the answer; what is it?

  4. Joseph Belle-Isle says:

    iT could BE A .45 FROM A tOMMY gUN BUT IT has TO COME FROM A SEMI-AUTOMATIC TO BE A SEMI SLUG DON’T IT?

    A semi-slug is the creature between a snail and a slug – it has the disadvantages of both. It carries a shell into which it cannot crawl and a slug is well, just a slug. But we can’t feel too sorry for these guys – they’ve been around for 60,000,000-years. Certainly longer than any humans will last.

    PS – ANYTHING tastes better with a garlic, butter, salt & pepper sauce. I’d eat cotton balls dipped in that!

    What kind of balls?
