I was casually scanning the news headlines on Yahoo this morning when I found myself re-reading one of them. Giant Snails Invade Barbados. The headline made me laugh so hard I had to read the artical.
I realize that these snails are causing some serious damage there, it's just that it seems like the plot from some shitty, B-movie.
When they talk about snails "swarming", all I can think of is the scene in Austin Powers when he runs the guys over with the steam roller... very... very... slowly.
Allaby Small, 66, has started lighting bonfires a few nights a week to kill the snails encroaching on his house, and said he worries they will find a way under his roof to his home.
