    Me and My Youngster Bobby went for a walk last night It was very damp and we noticed a place that was Crawling with Big Snails We gathered about 50
    Weve put them in a Glass Tank to Purge them (Incase they been eating poisonous plants)
    Were feeding them on Lettuce and Cucumber for 5 days or so then were gonna eat them.
    Ive looked on the internet and found numerous recipies for them Garlic Butter recipes sound best to me.
    Has anybody tried them before?

    Launch em' into the harbour m8. They're f***ing mingin. :vomit: :vomit: :vomit: A reliable rule of thumb for me is that if the french think they're a delicacy then they're probably disgusting. :laugh:
