    This reminds me of a snail joke...
    A guy's sitting at home watching TV when he hears a faint knock on his front door. He opens the door, looks around and eventually finds a snail looking up at him. He picks up the snail, looks up and down the block again (wondering if he's nuts), then tosses the snail out into the grass.
    A couple of months later, the guy hears another faint knock on the front door. He opens it, looks around, and seeing nothing looks down again to find the same snail looking up at him. The snail says, "So, what was THAT all about?"
