SNAILS ? !........ in a race.... who knew ? Everyone to their own taste.....er never mind !
OMG, Rebecca!!! That is the best caption yet! ROFL!! (giggles)
"...held in 1999..." Have they announced a winner yet? ;)
The first official competitive snail race in London, the "Guinness Gastropod Championship" held in 1999, was commentated by horse racing pundit John McCririck who started the race with the words "Ready, Steady, Slow". This is common terminology for the start of a race.Your captions were just as hilarious as the concept of snail "racing!" Thanks so much!
Sluggo (large one in center (or centre, depending on locale)) had been suspected of using steroids in the past. Here, in this time lapsed photo, a performance enhancing substance can clearly be seen under his shell.
it sticks here!
Hysterically laughing here! Great captions!!

Tragically,Sid and Stu knew their numbers were up in the French restaurant. The garlic butter was already under their shells and the pan was sizzling....
''Quick! Run for it! They're got salt!!!''
The photo finish (which required a 2-minute exposure) showed that No. 147, the Galloping Gastropod, had won by a neck - or whatever that is.
And they're off.
And the hare thought the tortoise was slow!
they are too quick to me
Cute with their little red stickers ...... but otherwise GROSS!! There's just something about slimy critters; we had snails in our aquariums years ago, didn't enjoy them then, either : - }}}
The 3rd annual L' Escargot Meter has now gone into it's third week, and it's a thrilling race. These thoroughbred mollusks are racing neck and neck after the first quarter meter! The spectators remain on the edge of their seats!!
