Jack and Ziggy are walking to school when they spot two snails moving along a wall. They choose a snail each and start watching the race. Soon the teacher spots them and orders them to go to school, but Jack points out they've still got a couple of minutes yet. Jack's snail begins to edge ahead, but the Ziggy points out the Thrush on a bus stop sign. He tells his snail that it's got his eye on him, and his snail starts moving.
Just then, a Frenchman appears, and Jack's snail rockets down the wall and wins. Eventually they arrive at school, and are told that the teacher's seen snails that move quicker!
The snails are named Black Flash and Striped Streak
The Frenchman says "Hello young people, shouldn't you be at school?" To which Jack replies "In a minute sir"
