  1. She may be slow, but we’re going steady.

  2. A scene from the movie adaptation of ‘Fifty Shades of Slime’

  3. Is that you Rainer?

  4. Slow, self absorbed, aging, narcissistic, slimy monolith of the Republican Party walking obediently into the sea under the direction of Karl Rove (represented by the mantis, although the mantis is kind of skinny for the analogy to work real well). Am I doing this right?

  5. “Fly my trusty steed! Fly like the wind!”

  6. Run Shadowfax! Show us the meaning of haste! … Hello?

  7. Man! T’is a snail!

  8. “OMG, a hermaphrodite?”

  9. Looks like I’ll be late for work…again!

  10. Some relationship just don’t work out…..

  11. Some relationships just don’t work out….

    OK, before you remove my comment, let me explain. That snail is moving slowly, but it sneaks up on you and changes the world. While it’s slowly plodding along, Faux Almost-News is making fun of it, throwing twigs in its way, and threatening to poor salt on the poor thing. Meanwhile, that snail crosses your garden and makes about 5,000 other snails. I mean, really, have you ever put just one little snail in an aquarium to help clean the tank? One day the tank is really, really clean. The next day you wonder what all those little black dots are on the rocks, and a few days later – voila – snail heaven. Before you know it, that snail has dismantled don’t ask, don’t tell; stopped massive job losses; stabilized the economy, expanded student loans, and won a reelection. All quietly, without any fanfare, without any boastfulness, just by plodding along. I’ll bet the Faux prognosticators were wondering, just exactly what do all those little blue dots on the electoral map mean? And, by the way, that mantis does kind of resemble Obama.
