Amorous Spotted Slug

Amorous Spotted Slug

On Monday, March 4th a mild mannered, fiction writer will slip into a phone booth and emerge as Sammy Slug, protector of the downtrodden, champion of the oppressed, and exalter extraordinaire of the Amorous Spotted Slug. He will gird his loins (as well as the rest of his copious body) with a yellow jumpsuit bespeckled with heart-shaped spots and prowl the streets of Marquette and surrounding hamlets. The goal: gathering signatures to support making the Amorous Spotted Slug Michigan’s official State Slug. In the process it may be necessary to tilt at offending windmills and slay the occasional dragon, which is sure to embarrass Sancho (aka wife).

TV-6 has requested an interview with the Amorous Spotted Superhero at his place of business (in front of the Post Office) at 9 am. This will be followed by a more serious interview with the mild mannered, fiction writer at S.L.I.M.E.’s newest S.N.O.T. Chapter, Wild Birds Unlimited of Marquette.

S.N.O.T Chapter: Marquette, Michigan

S.N.O.T Chapter: Marquette, Michigan

Michael & Deborah Berger of Wild Birds Unlimited of Marquette are the administrators of S.L.I.M.E.’s newest S.N.O.T. Chapter. Wild Birds Unlimited of Marquette is currently the only fixed location for signing an Amorous Spotted Slug for State Slug petition. Wild Birds is one of three Marquette outlets for the Cold Turkey Manuscript. Feel free to stop in and give Mike a hard time; but beware, he will try to convince you that Amorous Spotted Slugs prefer eating bird seed instead of pasties and Mackinaw Island Fudge!

 Other S.N.O.T. Chapters include:

  •  The Lone Star Slugs of McAllen, Texas (Ward Morrill)
  • The Chocolay Sluggers (Gretchen Preston and Christie Bleck)
  • The Gastropod Gourmets of Marquette (John Geueke)

Hi all you fellow writers.

Have u seen this slug??

I am in need of one or two paragraph reports of Amorous Spotted Slug sightings for my web site. (These are similar to Elvis sightings.) I will reward each reporter with a complimentary copy of my novel and a free I ♥ My Slug T-shirt. The sightings have to be real locations in the U.P., because, as we all know, Amorous Spotted Slugs only inhabit the U.P. Avoid Marquette and the Seney Stretch, since I already have sightings at those locations. Camp Michigamme, Big Bay, Sugar Loaf, or Grand Island are potential locations.

Your name and Amorous Spotted Slug sighting will then be posted on my web page. Most of you are already on web pages, so I know you aren’t shy. If you are unfamiliar with the Amorous Spotted Slug, background information is available at The Coconut Clipper and About the Amorous Spotted Slug. Amorous Spotted Slug Sightings will provide samples of previous sightings. These sighting reports can be serious or humorous.

Please send your slug-mail address with your sighting along with T-shirt size (small, medium, large, X-large, XX-large, or XXX-large).

Thank you kindly,

Larry Buege  LSBuege@aol.com
