U.S. Customs and Border protection inspectors at Los Angeles International Airport seized 67 live giant African snails meant for human consumption.

The prohibited snails arrived from Nigeria and were being sent to a person in San Dimas, said Lee Harty, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Meanwhile in South FLA, the snails just mozzy along. Hmmmmm? Olive oil, garlic, oregano, some pepper and tomato sauce, it could make some tasty land scungelli?

Waiter! There are snails on her plate. Now get them out of here before she sees them!

You would think that in a fancy restaurant at these prices you could keep the snails off the food! There are so many snails there you can’t even see the food!

Now take those away and bring us those melted cheese sandwich appetizers you talked me out of!

I guess they got caught because they weren’t moving fast enough...

If it crawls on ground and can be caught, a French or Chinese will eat it.

The feds kill a few dozen snails while they ship thousands of disease ridden illegals all over the country. The snails might carry germs that can be harmful to humans. The thousands of illegals are carrying diseases that will be harmful to American citizens.

The snails can always run for congress; that institution (term deliberate) always has a use for creatures that accomplish nothing - and do it very, very slowly.
