Mini-Story #3: Snail Sage

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, but impossible to get to, there was a snail who learned the meaning of life.

"Yay," said the snail, anxious to show his appreciation to the Elements for entrusting him with this bit of jealously sought wisdom. "Now I can sell this information to the highest bidder, become fabulously wealthy, and live as a snail should!"

Just then a hungry Frenchman noticed the lone snail inching its way toward bliss and promptly ate mankind's only hope for true enlightenment. The moral of this story is this: never try to sell someone happiness, because they will end up eating you for lunch.

Also, never eat anyone, because they might just be a snail.

Wise words here, TSB ol' buddy! Keep up the enlightened work.

I found the idea of a snail saying "Yay!" funny on the face of it. Or the shell of it.

Blimey! What a great name for a snail!

Blimey must've read Tolstoy's How Then Should A Snail Live?
