Calling Sponge Bob: Dude, Your Snail is Eating My House!

I'm going to have to file this one under "just plain weird" because it simply cannot be categorized any other way.

According to an article I read online today, giant house-eating snails are on the loose in Miami, Florida. African Land Snails are apparently not only huge and house eating, they also carry a microscopic parasite dangerous to humans.

These rapid reproducers were originally introduced to the area by residents who smuggled them into the country, believing them to have healing powers.

Man, and to think I was worried about the stink bugs . . .

Could Gary from Bikini Bottom be Behind this Invasion?
