But as far as superpowers go, being able to regrow yourself after serious injury, including decapitating oneself, is a useful one to have.

I'm not sure how many times cutting off one's own head would be useful but there must be the odd occasion.

At least you could see if your head would fit through some railings, which lets face it, we've all wondered from time to time:

That's f###ing amazing. Could this be how we solve the obesity crisis?

I'm not certain the slug gets to choose its new self from a catalogue.

I think it probably gets what it's given.

We create new cells all the time don't we. Unfortunately those new cells don't regenerate as anything other than copycat replacements of the old ones that died!

Slugs are brilliant (apart from chomping my Hostas).

Great bait for winkling out a few greedy chub.

We have no village green, or a shop. It's very, very quiet. I can walk to the pub.

But think how much fun it will be watching all those heads queuing in McDonald's for algae!

Not a fan of the new variety which is just arriving in the country. Gigantic, orangey-yellow things. Voracious eaters, but so unpleasant that nothing will eat them. Can even cause skin irritation in humans.

Do you have its Latin name Guthers...is it the Spanish one? Arion Rufus...more red than orangey-yellow.

Yes, that's the one. Or Arion Vulgaris. Have only seen it once or twice in the wild (as opposed to pictures).

Sorry

I’d like to be honest with you right from the start
I’m a murderer
(But one with a heart).
I’m not messing, I’m confessing
To all of my crimes
I don’t fib
And I hope it don’t seem glib that it rhymes.

My crimes aren’t of passion, premeditated or greed
I just didn’t see you
And it makes my heart bleed
I need to plead… guilty
For all the times when I rushed
This is my apology
To all the snails I’ve crushed.

I try to avoid you
But after it rains
You’re a slow slithering minefield
With delicate frames
Ipso facto, I tiptoe, there and back though
I lack
Light-footedness, and I confess
When I hear that crack…

I wince
I must convince… you
I truly am sorry
For going down on you (and not in a good way)
But like the wheels of a lorry
That passed over grass as the story unfurled
I’m public enemy number one
In the terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusc… world.

Don’t laugh
The footpath is a dangerous place
Where the gastropod plod face their latest case
A size 11 shoe wreaked havoc from Hades
(It’s true, I do have big feet ladies!)

I digress, it’s the stress, and yes
Snails, I’m rubbish
I destroyed the home you carry alone
And now you’re feeling sluggish.
