About

"Snails Sleep 3" refers to a Google search result for the query "how long do snails sleep", which shows a picture of a snail next to the word "three." On Reddit, the Google search is often mocked for failing to provide a unit of measurement, and is referenced as an in-joke within the /r/funny and /r/me_irl subreddits.

Origin

On February 28th, 2016, Redditor Unidan_nadinU submitted a post titled "Units of measurement are for suckers," featuring a screenshot of a Google search page with the search query "How long do snails sleep" followed by a result containing the word "three" (shown below).
