FROG GLUE DISCOVERED

Via Dave Barry:

"All species of frogs shed their skin once or twice a week, and then eat it. Itís a revolting sight," says Mike Tyler of Adelaide University, who discovered the frog glue.

I donít know about you, but a paragraph like that elevates my mood like a half-pound of Prozac.

I had frog on a stick, deep fried frog and dried frog in Thailand - never got around to frog skin though - i think i gave up my exploits somewhere between scorpion and flying ants ... Have to love Isaan quisine...someone should start a franchise...

What will be the brand name - 'Kermit's Grip'? (also available in the convenient, purse-sized Amphibi-Stik)

oops- link's gone funny. Try this one, or go through the menu to "cartoons", then click on frogblender 2000.

I thought all the frogs were dying because Bush is president.
