    Steve Christou is to blame for this question. It's not a spoof, it's the real thing.

    A banana slug is the giant yellow slug of the California redwood rainforest. They are the size and color of a banana:

    I'm not afraid of that.


    You're not going to put one on me, are you?

    Nothing a saucer of beer or a saltshaker can't solve.

    If one of those ended up in my place of residence, I would be frightened. Just looking at them and imagining how big they actually are... ewwwwww

    Heck, I could beat one of them up with my bare hands any of a number of garden tools.

    Good one Jim but I still stick with the nice large canister of Salt myself and scrape them off later. [​IMG]

    We have a high school in SE Michigan that has the nickname "The Tractors". Nothing brings a tear to the eye like hearing a rousing fight song involving tractors.

    As for the Slug, its goofy, but I like it.
