Yup, apparently snails teleport when you don't look at them. I swear I've read about that somewhere :P

Only land snails teleport. Sea snails have developed a method of FTL travel involving the utilisation of negative mass.

Maybe they dont teleport, but have invented a cloaking machine so that they are invisible to us, then they move position and turn the cloak off again?

When I turned on my PC this morning, on the screen were lots of snails congregating around a tin of luncheon meat - they were Spam e-snails.

But, seriously folks, a lot of the snails round where I live drive customised cars - the Renault Clio being amongst their favourite models. These Gary Snails meet in the carpark of our local Tesco in the early hours with a cacophany of BOOM tsssshh BOOM tsssshh music blaring from speakers the size of Tahiti. The speakers are so big they can't actually fit them in their cars so they leave them in the carpark and just plug in when they get there.

Erm... It's just the way you said it. You said it as "Beeeeeeeeeaverland" and it sounded weird. I mean, everyone knows Beaverland exists!

Oh dear, you weren't paying attention were you. It says docslodge. Lodge, not dam. tsk!
Anyway, why shouldn't beavers use outside contractors? Don't be specieist!
