Snails are delicious with butter sauce! Wonder if West African chimps with sharp sticks would enjoy them too?

If you add a little 'Rosemary' and 'Pepper' to that butter sauce, well, then, I don't see how those West African sharp stick chimps could resist!

Ms. Rosemary, it was a pleasure meeting you and Nick and all of the other incredible folks last night. It truly was my pleasure. Let's do it again soon!
