Total Recall?

This procedure will help those who experience SRS* to come out of their shells.

* Slug-gish Recollection Syndrome

I know I have read this article before, I just can't remember when.

What does a snail's memory consist of?

1. Eat it.
2. Slime it.
3. Cut down on salt intake.
3. Remember not to get squished.

Welcome to the Aplysia Californica
Such a shocking place (such a shocking place)
Such a shocking chase
We are all doomed at the Aplysia Californica.
Any time of year (any time of year), they will jolt your rear..

And now the poor snail has unexplained Vietnam War flashbacks.

It has the side effect of increasing memory capacity. This will give the police a better chance of solving snail-on-snail muggings. The problem in the past has been getting enough detail from the victim; he has never noticed much because it all happens so fast.
