Help me, TQC, you're my only hope

I was just outside taking the catsand to the trash and discovered that the rain has brought the slugs out!! Hundreds and hundreds of horrible, horrible slugs. It's storming right now, but tomorrow night I'm going to have a Slug Pickin' Party -- picking them off wherever/whatever they're on and dropping them into a bag of water with some soap in it.

But I'll need something to cheer me up while I'm doing it, because even though I wear nitrile gloves while I do it, it's so ICKY YUCK YUCK EWWWW to pick a big one up and feel it squirm and wriggle!

So what are some happy thoughts to think? Or if you can't think of any, what would be a more fun way to kill slugs? (I use SlugGo but apparently this is a new hatching.... ick.)

ETA: The slug pickin' was quite successful -- I got 50 or 60 small and medium slugs, and 2 or 3 breeding size adults. I also timed their agonies in the water -- from drop in to complete relaxation in death was about 2 seconds. No thrashing, nothing. Just plop, sink, uncurl, die. I'll be picking again tomorrow night, then spreading SlugGo.
