By way of explanation, we went to Mason Neck State Park today, and he waded out into Belmont Bay and threw a snail.

    I would have written “gastropod.” Sure, “mollusc” is amusing, but the word “gastropod” is outright funny.

    Although there is something about mollusc. It looks as if somebody started spelling the word and then got distracted.

    Super cute.

    PETA is not amused.

    Gastropod would’ve taken the title past two lines, in addition to lacking the alliteration with ‘missile’. I looked at Wikipedia briefly, and figure ‘mollusc’ wasn’t totally incorrect, and went with it.

    Could I suggest Benedikt, with a”k”?

    Molluscs are randy little fellows !!

    It’s nice to see the little guy in action again. Love his hat.

    Right, the inexorable laws of headline writing. What’s disturbing is that I worked on newspapers in both high school and college and used to know them.

    Well, probably the World’s Youngest Blogger will be more receptive and retentive.
