Well, I'd like to know where researchers are finding these so-called snail guts. They're never to be found in the international delights aisle at my grocery store.

Vintage escargot?

They should have just checked their Florida driver's licenses.

Clankie- Snail guts are usually found inside the snail. The scientists who ran these vital research projects have caused some to try eating escargot made from old snails. All recovered after a brief hospital stay. There could still be a market for them, however, in gas station sushi bars.

I'm not impressed. Why not 200 year old snail guts?

The Villages are reported to be just loaded with those things.
