Slugs are owed much more respect:
- They have shells! Ok most are inside and offer miniscule protection but they do have shells, along with a heart, lung and kidneys.
- Apparently if you boil three in milk and swallow whole you can cure TB!
- They are hermaphrodites and can fertilise themselves. They do this by coiling their corkscrew penises around each other to exchange sperm. Trouble is though that they often get tangled up with their partners and are forced to gnaw each others' penises off! This then makes both slugs effectively bio female and remain so evermore.
So before you salt one- think about what the poor buggers have already been through please!
