LOL, remember my snails from Easter?

Gooooooooood Monday morning y'all!

I hope you had a pretty weekend. I did, for the most part. First of all, everyone needs to watch OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN!!! That movie is totally BAD @SS!!! I was literally screaming, shouting, clapping at the screen. Gerard Butler is definitely back! Such a thrilling movie - it's highly recommended!

Secondly, just before I went to bed last night, I was doing my usual browsing and was extremely tickled to read an article on Yahoo. The title - 'Florida battles slimy invasion by giant snails.' Ordinarily I wouldn't click, but out of curiousity I did and this was the picture that went along with the article.

Erm, isn't that the same kind of snails I ate during Easter? See the full post here, and let's compare the picture I posted.

Yup, it's the same snail.

So according to the article, Florida's being infested with "one of the world's most destructive invasive species... with more than 1000 being caught per week in Miami-Dade." The article goes on to say that "experts gathered last week in Gainesville, Florida, for a Giant African Land Snail Science Symposium, to seek the best ways to eradicate the mollusks, including use of a stronger bait approved recently by the federal government."

BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm here to propose a VERY VERY simple solution.

Dear Florida, just call for Nigerians in the region to please come and collect snails for use in soup or stew for free! There are 3 benefits to this solution...
  1. The "invasive species are eradicated."
  2. An immigrant group is made happy.
  3. US Customs will have one less thing to look out for, from Nigerians entering the country.
