A slug to cheer you up

Call me weird, but I like slugs. They're cute. See?

Don't be hatin' on them. Look,

From Wikipedia;
Apophallation is a commonly seen practice among many slugs. In apophallating species, the penis curls like a corkscrew and during mating often becomes entangled in the mate's genitalia. Apophallation allows the slugs to separate themselves by one or both of the slugs chewing off the other's penis! Once its penis has been removed, the slug is still able to mate using only the female parts of its reproductive system.

If that doesn't make you sympathize, I don't know what will.
