I was just outside having a ciggy and there were 3 massive slugs. However I had my ciggy on a first floor balcony. How the hell did they get there? Were they dropped by birds or something?

But it would be a mighty climb. Its about 10ft! And why do they all appear together? I hate slugs- what if they come in the house? Is it pepper you sprinkle on them?

It's salt, but there is no need (its a bit cruel). Just pick them up and throw them back in the garden.

Pick them up? What with? Surely the natural salt on our skin will make them explode?

They are work of the devil !! What purpose do they have ? Ohhh they make my skin crawl we used to have them come though an air vent when we first moved in to our house thankfully I've had the vent closed up so no more squashed slugs between my toes

They are organic creatures, but I suppose some nutters might tell you a bloke in the sky created them one day because he felt like it.

Even if that was true, it would make the bloke a reet twunt.

They obviously come from Hell. They everything in my garden, except the weeds, then they lie down and wait for me to stand on them which makes me want to vomit.

Wear gloves then! (And no, you are not salty enough to hurt them).

The slugs down my way sell tiny 'big issue' magazines to all the snails.

I get them at my door when it's raining. Nothing a little salt doesn't sort out though

Me and friend were having a fag at the door and we seen a huge one

I hate them. Yet it's only this year they have really started coming in.
