Grasshopper Sets the Record Straight

First off, that part about how I didn’t save up for winter? Totally false. My pantry was so full, in fact, that I hired the Ants to build me a grain elevator. But before I know what’s happening, they walk off with my stash and spread rumors to the press, until now I’m some kind of poster boy for idleness. Total smear campaign.

Snailio Makes Itself Perfectly Clear

I don’t mean to be a pane but it’s not easy being transparent.

I’m fed up with birds crashing into me.

Enormous Appetite

I am really into the slow food movement and consider myself an aficionado of fine foods. The salad course I am enjoying now, for instance, has been left in the sun and soil to leisurely brown until its sweet and fruity flavors intensify.

The next course in my haute cuisine will be a decomposing mushroom with a reduced spore sauce. Sure, it will take me 45 minutes of travel time for the entrée, but that’s why it’s a slow food movement.
