The meteorological phenomenon known as ‘The Jet Stream’ has brought about the arrival of millions of slugs during the summer of 2012. One slimy ‘so-and-so’ measuring a massive 12cm in length.
As well as sandbags and people pointing at wet carpets and flooded cellars these slugs have had quite a lot of news coverage over the past four months.
As well as the garden variety of slugs on ‘Huw’s At Ten’ there have been a lot of two-legged ones too.
Most of the latter being disposed of not through slug pellets and salt but via the use of massive golden handshake bonuses and televised ‘enquiry interviews’.
Of course some slugs get rid of other slugs but won’t shrivel up themselves. The ‘Osborne’ and ‘May’ variety being notorious for this.
Until we reach warmer days, these slugs will continue to ruin everything and will always cost us all a lot of money just to get rid of them. There’s goes another one slithering its way up the money tree!
