The slugs all have mobile phones and have been organizing flash mobs in my lettuce patch.
Via Twitter, I suspect.
slimy2009 MIG HAS SET OUT SAUCERS OF BEER! PARTAAAYY!!1! #lettucemob
My wife told me she saw a mob of slugs around one of the dishes I’d set out, drinking beer.
I thought they were supposed to get drunk and fall in or something, but they just have a drink and then go eat lettuce.
slimy2009 DUDE I AM SO BUZZED.
mucouslvr @slimy2009 GO EAT SOME LETTUCE AND CLEAN OUT YR SYSTM.
My wife thinks I didn’t put enough beer in the dishes. All I have is good beer, though, and I hate to share it with slugs. She also says the cat was drinking some.
slimy2009 @mucouslvr DUDE YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHO I’M DRINKING WITH.
mucouslvr @slimy2009 THE CAT?
slimy2009 @mucouslvr HOW’D U NO?
mucouslvr @slimy2009 I’M 3 SLUGZ 2 YR LEFT
My wife thinks more beer in deeper dishes might do the trick. I’m hoping it at least makes them slower and easier to catch.
