    I threw a crust of bread out in the garden , just went outside to take out the bins and there's about 100 snails on the garden path, all crawling towards the bread.

    I don't think I've ever seen that many together

    Skweeky, just imagine the sensual feeling of 100 snails sliding softly over your body.
    I heard it is rejuvenating for the skin.

    I was thinking that but that would be particulary evil

    besides, it'll be more fun to watch the first bird that spots that bit of bread

    It was rainy here today, and since I live in a suburb a bit outside the city we get snails fooking everywhere. It's those big brown/black snail without a shell on the back.

    They're gross. My grandma like to eat them, that's strange...

    Snails sounds better. Slugs sounds like some british silly-word.
