My racing snail

Postby motoman » Sat Nov 27, 2010 9:32 am

I purchased this snail from a dealer at the track, I was assured it was the fastest available. It only came second in its first race so I removed it's shell to lighten it a little. Unfortunately it is even more sluggish.

My snail was out clubbing with a friend when they were mugged by a tortoise.

They were a bit knocked about and woke up in a daze..............

A guy i went to school with was in the Guinness World Records book for owning the fastest snail in the world.

Not a joke, just a mildly amusing factoid...

france is a dangerous place for snails - i personally know people how like eating them... :shock:

i tried about 3 or 4 that day, after which i needed about half a bottle of red wine to wash them down. needless to mention that i have never tried since...

all a matter of perspective as even the (local) kids ate them.

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

So sorry to hear your plight but that's what you get for trusting snail dealers; there reputation exceeds the dirty dealing of those in the horse trade. Obviously it is a no goer. I suggest you waste no money on vets or training.
