DLP Launches Snail Picking Initiative

It appears as though the slightly used new government of Barbados has declared war on the Giant African Snail plaguing our island.

In so doing they have launched what I call the Snail Picking Initiative which involves members of the general public assembling at 3 in the morning at Rock Hall, St. Thomas to pick snails . Given the fact that this said government has not rectified the public transport issues which have been brought to the table, I wonder how people are supposed to get there. At any rate, I guess that’s the difference between socialists and capitalists. Socialists would assemble a posse, rally troops, get uniforms to show their sovereignty and spend 2-8 hours picking snails one by one. Capitalists would make a call, work out a fee, and pay professional exterminators to deal with the problem.

At any rate, Click Here for a Giant African Snail Recipe I think may come in handy after the windfall I expect them to get. You know what they say, waste not, want not.

    A friend of mine just suggested it should become the new national dish. Hmmm, any thoughts?
