Last month, a couple of men came to a Marin County restaurant and had a meal that included escargot. You know, the stuff that tastes like a garden hose (but so yummy with garlic and butter).
Each man has now claimed they were scalded and stained and nearly blinded by exploding snails. But as the defendant noted, they said nothing to staff and went happily on eating their dinner.
Did the gastropods really blow up?
A judge says now he thinks there's no case and these greedy men should knock it off.
Interestingly, orders for the garlicky yard pests went up drastically at the restaurant as a result of the case.
And that is my report.
