You know that people only started to eat them becuse the were a pest on the vineyards?

...along with the grape-berry moths and cutworms too, did they get eaten as well?

BROWN ENVELOPES!!....who's getting brown envelopes?


If I gave you the answer I'd have to put it in a brown envelope ....

Just make sure if you do that the envelope is windowless....

Think I'd rather have sausage rolls or fish and chips, with a pint of a good Belgian ale to wash it down.

Not because working the vineyards was hard work and they were a little bit hungry?

In other news the snails from the garden are now with the chef.

If you put them in Brown window envelopes and seal them, then within a month the envelope would have crashed with a BSOD and the contents turned a putrid uneatable brown.
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Is that because of the nitrogen in the flesh?

Oh yes the brown envelope. Problem was I forgot it had a window, and wondered why I got funny looks on the bus to your place.
