Giant snails? This makes my head hurt.

Giant snails can carry potentially fatal diseases so never, ever...oh crap.

"Almost everybody has Snail Fever"
The doctor whispered in my ear.
"Some they treat feel better, some don't.
The cause is still unclear,
We're unable to treat you here."

What if they develop a taste for humans like one of those man eating tigers in Africa?

I fear no animal that can be slaughtered, in mass, with a farking salt shaker.

They also meow very loudly.

Is meningitis like the measles?  I have already had it, so I'm good right?
 
2013-05-09 09:54:23 AM  
Well, they carry it very slowly, so there's that.
 
2013-05-09 09:54:54 AM  
But do they taste good?
 
2013-05-09 09:57:18 AM  
Wonder if this is related to the recent meningitis outbreak among the gays?  Is there something they don't want to tell us they've been doing?  Not that there's anything wrong with that....

Nothing carries meningitis in of itself because it is a condition, but it may carry bacteria or viral agents which then cause meningitis.

At first glance I thought this was an extremely elaborate way of slipping a racial slur past the filters.

Came to say that.  Meningitis has many causes:  bacterial, viral, parasitical, and more.  Snails are no more hazardous than any other vectors.

Luckily, humans can't transport meningitis or we'd be in big trouble.

Onlooker: Snail herding?
Snail Herder: Yes, today has been stressful but productive.
Onlooker: Horrible! How so?
Snail Herder: They went over a log with minimal losses.

Relax, it's Houston.  The Vietnamese and Hmong immigrants will take care of this in short order.

A box of Morton's salt will clear that right up.

Look, all this silly talk about getting meningitis from snails is giving me a headache.

How is it that those things don't have any natural predators?

According to what I just read on Wikipedia, they literally have almost no enemies.  Assuming they are edible, I think us humans need to take up that task.

They're asking me about you. Florida. Why is it always you?

Snails can't carry meningtit, they don't even have any hands.

Stoopid science people.

Considering I currently have a middle ear infection, a case of opportunistic conjunctivitis, and an upper-respiratory tract infection, I for one would welcome the sweet embrace of a comma caused by meningitis. This sucks.

There's a bunch of commas for you.  You're welcome.

Came here to say that meningitis isn't a disease; it's a condition caused when a virus, bacteria, or fungus somehow infects the meninges, glad to see it's already been done.

I had the viral form a couple of years ago, and that form is frequently just any random virus, often less dangerous than the common cold, that somehow gets in with your brain fluid.

Which makes me wonder... what if it were a different virus that entered your brain fluid - say, HIV. Can one get the Brain HIV? Ewww.
