It's a mammal that lays eggs, has a duck bill, a poison spur on it's leg, and now we find out it is affected by an amphibian disease?!? WOW, Darwin eat yer spleen, stomach and rectum out!

Yeah! Drop all that cancer and heart disease research and Cure those frogs!!! Now!

Sondra ... I think mebbe the research is not such a bad idea ... after all, this one might be cross-genus effective ... wipin' out all life (except cockroaches?) from the face of the planet ...

I sorta recall when research on a certain ailment was virtually nil, 'cuz only "certain" people were gonna get it, and besides, the world would be a better place without them NEway ...

Not that I think they should take away from heart/cancer/other human health work, but this might not be a completely bad thing to do ...

/ sermon-not-funny

O. the U(manity),

I'm not really against curing frogs. I like frogs. The problem with the written word is that you can't see making acting the fool, to go with the words.

Quick, before Mr. Lauguage person sees.

Change making to me.

haiku

platypus disease
spreads to frogs, and then further
it's time to panic

the angel of death
has webbed feet and a duck bill
(eye roll) that figures

life's circle, oh well.
stumble, rise, walk and stumble
irony happens

I always thought the plural was platypi.

Shall we change Lauguage to Language as well, Sandra?

;-)

Cheryl,

LOL

Thanks, I've been needing a good laf.

(and Sondra is spelled with an O.)

*kibby gets caught up in all the hype*

*distributes banners with slogans like*

FROGS NOW! TOE JAM NEXT!

SAVE THE FROG - CURE A PLATYPUS

THE ONLY GOOD FROG ... IS ONE WITHOUT BACK ULCERS!

BACK & TAIL ULCERS? SPEAK TO THE PLATYPUS.

STOP! PLATYPUS'S INFECTING FROGS! NOW!

.... wait a minute, did they say Frogs????

Jemmy, I thought so, too. Not that I have many occasions to discuss the plurality of platypus. Usually, one platypus is enough.

Ha, ha!! It figures I'd screw up your name, SONdra. Poetic justice.

Back & Tail Ulsers - GNFARB ?

Is this contagieous? Ulcers

contagieous is of course spellled correctlie

Side note: There's a University of Tasmania?

Lets see, courses might be: Bloodsucking 101, How to Housebreak your Bat, Cures for the Common Garlic…

Edgar Greenberg,

Eye no.

LBFF - That would be the University of Transylvania wouldnt it?

Tasmania is where that wonderful little Devil from the Warner Bros cartoons lives.

*random neuron fires and 'correctile dysfunction' floats across brain* *grabs bottle of captain morgan and goes hunting for that damn neuron*

Comic-geek question: If Peter Parker had been bitten by an irradiated platypus, would he have developed webbed feet and poison spurs on his ankles?

Excelsior, true believers! 'Nuff said!

Kid Charlemagne,

I'm guessing that he would have developed ulcers on his back.

Actually, yes, there is a Transylvania University (it's a liberal arts college), not in Europe, but (of course!) Lexington, KY.

FROGS!!!!
Why does it have to be frogs???

ribbit

fivver,

I read 'correctile' the first time, too. Hope you can find that nueron. It may have been the only one left. (If you find it, can we share? I haven't scene any around hear all daye.)

Sondra (with an O), Cheryl (not Sherill?), et al. ...

OK -- relax -- have another Mojito, or Breakfast Irish Coffee, or whutever ... it's Friday ...

mud - *snorks* and *awe*! One/three of your best:)

...and for those of us who occasionally receive inquiries about work-related issues, some good verbiage to borrow: "We're hoping over the next few months to get a project up and running which is looking fairly promising, but basically from 2000 up until now there's been really nothing at all."

and

"Ulcerous Platypuses" - WBAGNFARB

OR

"Weeping Frog Ulcer & the Platypussies"

Coast-Ooops! Yes I meant Transylvania. ;-)

Instead of getting the project "up and running", shouldn't they get it "up and hopping"?

Doctors examining frogs for Platypus disease?

Oh, man.... the frogs aren't going to like it when they get the bill.

*climbs up posts with great difficulty to retrieve renegade 'and' which skittered off in the confusion*

A 10 minute Bacardi Movie about how to make a Mojito

That article has so little information it is pathetic. As written, with absolutely no statement on why scientists think a platypus disease could spread to frogs, it just seems like a researcher's wish list. There is nothing that says it has happened, only that it could.

"Ummmmm.....we have done nothing since 2000, so let's, ah ........ study platypus disease transmission to frogs! Yeah, that's it! We need to do this. Absolutely!"
