FROG UPDATE

Dear Mr Barry,

I have just become aware of the link via your blog to our story a couple of weeks ago which referred to 'frog day'. Thank you! You have done our web stats for the month a big favour (or favor to translate into American).


It's fantastic for our little newspaper site to receive such worldwide attention.


If you're interested in another story on the frog theme (and we do write about other things here, honest!), then this link may be of interest.


We have an update on the saga of Croakie appearing in our newspaper this week. He's still alive, just.


Thanks very much and keep up the good work.

when those guys have served their time, I hops they've toad the line!

How could someone do this? My poor Croakie must be ever so cold."


Memo to Mrs. Goldsmith:
1) It's a joke.
2) Ceramic frogs don't mind the cold so much...

*realizes some people just don't have their tinfoil hats properly set upon their noggins*

Croakie? That's a lotta Bull, Simon.

"The ransom note featured a picture of the frog, with the cry Help me please, I've been frognapped'"

That's not what the ransom note says. The note is as follows:

HELP ME, PLEASE HELP ME. I HAVE BEEN FROGNAPPED

A subtle, yet important distinction.

What is toad spotting? Do you catch them and then paint spots on their backs?

Crikey, they've taken Croakie!!! Warts this world coming to???

the frognappers will send him back one shard at a time.

The guy's name is Bull? As in Bull Frog?

'Kay.

"The police refused to comment but are sure to frogmarch the kidnappers to the nearest police station when they catch them.
"
The Frogs march in England. I thought England solved their problems with France in the 1800's.

im toadally shocked

ribbit.

Dear Mr So-Called Barry,

I have just become aware via my wife, Ivanna, that the link via your blog to our story a couple of weeks ago which referred to 'frog day', was not, in point of fact, one of comradely information sharing, but rather one of mocking, jeering, vexing cruelty, and fun poking. I will kindly thank you to cease such activities forthwith! While it is true that you have done our web stats for the month a big favour (translate into American yourself, booger-expert!), we neither need nor appreciate the sort of traffic generated by ne'er do well know it all jerkface American meanies.

Our little newspaper site may not receive much worldwide attention, but at least we're not obsessed with toilets and exposed naughty bits!

If you're interested in another story on the frog theme (and we do write about other things, such as toads and tadpoles here, honest!), kindly link to someone else.

However, in the unlikely event that you are capable of serious journalistic news dissemination, we have an update on the saga of Croakie appearing in our newspaper this week. He's still alive, just bleeding profusely from the neck area, in a very unfunny way, so stop your snickering.

Thanks, or not, very much and etc.

Some people just get waaaay to attached to inanimate objects. I however am not one of the now if you'll excuse me my teddy bear is needing attention.
