May as well be National Eat-Your-Own-Snot Day

Everybody get ready. Because tomorrow, May 24, is National Escargot Day.

I have never tried escargot, nor do I ever plan to, because the thought of eating a once-slimy snail, no matter how it may be "prepared", is about as repulsive as it gets for me.

Why on earth a group of people would create a National Day for this probably-disgusting dish I can probably understand, chalking it up to being one of those foreign-culture things that I find odd...vive la difference. However, that these people would go so far as to create National Escargot Day greeting cards is one of the Perplexing Mysteries of the Known Universe that I hope will be explained to me when I get to my Heavenly Home.
