THE NEWS FROM BRITAIN

It's getting ugly over there.

Key Quote: "Frogs don't have a penis."

UPDATE: Here is a relevant (and we assume very tasteful) eBay item.

The Key Quote is right. Frogs DON'T have a penis. They would have penises. Penii? Peenees...


I'm going back to bed.

The tone has become a cult hit with its 'ding ding ding' engine sound and earned £10million for its makers.

Sounds like a lot of Brits have been getting access to the ding ding.

Frogs don't have penises

*looking down*

We don't?

In the first article, I saw: "It's vulvar and not anatomically correct - frogs don't have penises."

Lynn - you must be dreaming of snakes. They're (not their) the ones with two. Frogs got none.

Or maybe you're (not your) just dreaming of pen- er, nevermind, just enjoy the dream. ;-)

We're planning to trip to the British Isles, but after that article, we'll just b3e traveling to Scotland, instead!

Besides, I prefer Scotch Whiskey to Gin. (I'm not so sure about 'Haggis'.

* I hope this doesn't offend Lmd33*

Boo to fake ebaY items . . .

The truth must now be told: The frog and Sponge Bob are, cross-species, graphics-based, gay lovers!

scat' -- r.e.:

According to the "Ask a Scientist" web page (I'd link if I could figure out how to do it right), "male (frogs) have stouter front legs (than females) with enlarged "thumbs".

Well, yes, but do you know why this is the case?

Well, that certainly tells us more than we really needed to know about Mr. Robert Swift, does it not (not knot)? [The implication is that Swift's Willie is shorter than needed to tie it into a knot (not not).]

Tasteful? Perhaps, if filled with the proper potable.

(But the pix would not open for me, so I am only guessing.)

I did not do that!

It's the blog clock again.

Besides which, I was only driving ... right, Lily?

Likely story, C.R. We shall see if it holds up during our investigation. Watson! Get out the rubber gloves.

Well, p'haps better a set of dignified English rubber gloves, than a sock full of nickels ...

OW!

thanks cheesewiz - i had a similar thought. dont these people have anything else to do??

Another Key Quote:

"Jamster marketing manager Robert Swift said: "My only complaint is he's better endowed than me."

Marketing manager Swift
Said,"To women I'm not Nature's gift
It's important to share
But it seems that 'down there'
I'm a tadpole, if you get my drift."

As I remember biology classes, when this phenomena of physical characteristic was noted in the male of a species, the prevailing theory was that this trait of development was for the purpose of "being able to hold on better and subdue the efforts of the female to escape, when mating with the female" ... or thoughts along those lines ...

tho I may be slightly in error on this, I think it is at least part of the physiological explanation for the development ...

Frogs have thumbs?

If that's the same sound used for the insanity test, then the future of the world is looking dim.

Alex -

No problem keeping from laughing ...

Besides which already, Paul Stookey did it better ...

Whether describing "an Austin-Healy Sprite (trying desperately to catch up with the rest of the Volkswagens in the race ..." or the sound of "Mr. Businessman destroying his new band job ..." by drag racing with The Kid ...) his sounds were much more effective IMHO ...

Actually, Stan Freberg's "Lake Michigan - drained and filled with hot chocolate" is a lot better, too, but for different reasons ...

scat' - well, some body asked, what can I say? (Yeah, I'll admit that I get very close to TMI some of the time ... I'm trying to get a prescription for it, but have not yet located a cooperative doctor to scribble in Latin ...)

U.O.
Try "Carter's Little Liver Pills" or Bubble Gum.

kC -

How you been, NEway ... I keep forgetting to ask, what with keeping up with all your pseudonyms and all ...

BTW, where I grew up, we called 'em

Carter's Farter Starters

just FYI

When I was 3yrs. old and the Evening Newspaper came in the late afternoon, I always had to see that tiny little ad in the paper for "Carter's Little Liver Pills. It was one column by 1" and showed a little man in silhouette running. My grandmother or my grandfather had to show me the ad first thing or I would have a 'nervous' spasm. Seeing this ad, for some reason, gave me a feeling that all was 'right' with the world. I have no idea why it was so important. (however, there was an elderly black neighbor that lived across our side street and his name was 'Abraham Lincoln Carter.' I guess that somehow I was trying to make some sort of connection. My grandmother called him 'Carter'(which was his preference)

Correction: His full name was Abraham Lincoln Washington Carter. (whew, I'm sorry I forgot about the 'Washington!)

Back in the old days, when I was a bus driver, I worked with Jimmy Carter ... no, not that one ...

He, too, preferred "Jimmy" to "James" ... and I'm not positive, but the Jimmy might have been what was on his birth certificate ...

This is just a little "FYI" tidbit, but I really cannot remember if Salvador had a penis or not; I don't think I ever did check. But it doesn't matter -- it never would have worked between us.

So that's it. That's just for your own personal memory bank. Wear a helmet. Wear a seatbelt. Wear a condom. Safety first!

Just so you know for certain, I am NOT the one posting the previous (or any other) bullspackle.

U.O.
You're up before the 'Dawn's Early Crackle! Or rather late,--impossible to tell with the blog clock. Are you in the central time zone?

Horrible Frog and the Little Willies wbagnfarb.

kC -
Naw, that was late, I'm still in the PST zone, so it was only a little after 11 pm -- just before I went to bed ...

How many time zones does Texas have? Two that I'm sure of ... but even Texas doesn't span three time zones, does it ???

Riddle: What can one find, smack-dab in the middle of Texas?

To U.O.:
An x and a hell of a lot of sagebrush and dead coyotes?
