Take a bit out of slime!

I saw Giant Snail Invasion on SyFy after Sharknado.

Semi-serious question?
Has anyone notified the French?
Did they look at the snails and surrender?

Escargot - from appetizer to entree!

Not exactly the stuff of a Rin-Tin-Tin movie.

Lucy?

Snap, Crackle, Squish?

I almost sent this in last night, but realized that the Blog Squad would already be all over anything that mentioned bizarre Florida wildlife + trained (sic)Labradors.

...and yes, Dave; my assumption is that they lick them to death: such is the creed of the Mighty Labrador.

P.S. Last week I attended a gathering which included a young Lab, along with several low coffee tables for the snacks. Although only months old, said Lab had already learned to stand closely parallel to the table, fixing his bright eyes directly on mine with a guileless enthusiasm, wagging furiously at the other end, while his tongue, totally independently, executed a 90 degree scarfing maneuver that would have won applause for stealth felony from the U.S. Congress. Ya gotta love'em.

And then, of course, there's the 180 degree turn that enables the tail to accidentally sweep things off low tables onto the floor ... not limited to Labs, by any means.
