Scientists have discovered that certain species of Japanese snail can not only survive being eaten and then excreted by birds, they actually benefit from the process in many cases by finding themselves deposited in new uncropped habitats.

Don't let RyanAir know this - they might advance a business model accordingly.
Chip fat in the fuel tanks, passengers in the gut?
But wouldn't this improve the level of service offered to RyanAir passengers?
I know I'd prefer to get shat out of a bird in preference to travelling RyanAir....
Wildlife parallels the human world again.
I'm a RyanAir survivor
Let me get this straight.
The snails get picked up, flown for miles in a foul environment and then get shat out in the middle of nowhere.
They should look on the bright side. At least they haven't paid Ryanair for the privilege.....
Great way to travel. And I bet the snails didn't have to undergo any intrusive or humiliating security checks involving groping and nudie scanners, too!
I'd hate to be RyanAir
How shit does your reputation have to be for the first three comments on a story like this to all be digs at your company?

scientifically feeding is different from normal feeding??
you do it with safety goggles on or something?
So, Job was a snail and it wasn't a whale but a bird, got it.
Translation error, sorry.
You know what?
Overall, being swallowed whole, and getting shat out at a random destination beats being made to show up at the airport 4 hours early for your TSA-mandated finger-bang, and having your bottle of diet coke confiscated for national security.
A lot like going to Mars then?
I think you'll find that's a fowl environment
Its not Ryanair
Its Brianair....magic roundabout geddit.
Probably the finest headline to any article, anywhere at any time.
Shouldn't that tagline read...
I can envisage this being turned into a new game..
