During mating, some snails and slugs fire “love darts”
into the flesh of their partners. Apparently, mucus on
the darts increases the fertility of the “darted” snail.

When gastropods go out on dates
And wish to penetrate their mates
They don’t aim at their private parts
But skewer them with slimy darts.
As we spear unsuspecting whales
They harpoon self-respecting snails.
