Mediocre Fight of the Day: Snail vs Snail

The Mediocre Fight

Snail racing is a form of unsanctioned and illegal mollusk racing which takes place on public foliage.  Snail racing can either be spontaneous or well-planned and coordinated. Well coordinated races are planned in advance and often have cephalopods communicating via 2-way radio/citizens’ band radio and using police scanners and GPS units to mark locations of local police hot spots. Snail racing is reported to have originated prior to the 1930s due to alcohol prohibition in some parts of the United States. Opponents of snail racing cite a lack of safety relative to sanctioned racing events, as well as legal repercussions arising from incidents, among snail racing’s drawbacks.

Or maybe that’s street racing… I always get the two confused.
