Duh. It shows the British fighting the French!

Because the bunnies will kill you.

It was their method of keeping them out of Florida.

Medieval armor is kinda heavy and obviously snails were the only things which couldn't run away from a knight.

For want of a snail the shoe was lost
For want of a shoe the horse was lost
For want of a horse the knight was lost...

They want the snails to surrender. They need the snails.

Showing that they were so good with their spears that they could hit the little, tiny, target the snail shell naturally forms?
Showing disgust for something that could out run a man in a steel suit?

Silly English Kaaaa-knigettes!

To be fair, those look like pretty big snails.
