ALARMING TERRORISM UPDATE

Now the bastards are using exploding toads.

Key Quote from Werner "Werner Smolnik" Smolnik: It is like "a science fiction film", according to Werner Smolnik.

(Thanks to nine zillion alarmed people)

Someone's been feeding the toads Alka-Seltzer.

I saw that sci-fi film! It stank.

It's not Alka Seltzer..., it's Sign of the Apocalypse No. 3,456

Next Week: Resurrected John Paul II Creates Pope Surplus.

Beware the "pond of death". *snicker*.

Werner Smolnik == Kremlin worsen

gnfarb? Batrachians Go Bang

Maybe they could take whatever is causing the German toads to blow up down to Australia and give it to the cane toads.

I hate it when amphibians perish after their bodies swell to the bursting point and their entrails are propelled for up to a metre (three feet), but I guess science fiction is an acquired taste.

"Hey Hans, how is your toad enlargement project coming?"
"Not so good."

----

"Hey, did your toad win at Calavaras County?"
"Yeah."
"That's great!"
"Not really."
"Why not?"
"He covered the last three feet by exploding his entrails across the finish line. They're changing the rules for next year."

The Australians would pay millions for this new "toad explode" technology -- Werner needs to call them ASAP!

Wait a minute - this phenomenon has been traced to a lake in Hamburg. Is there a brewery in the vacinity that may be dumping beer there? Maybe the toadies just can't handle their suds.

Hold on. Did you say toads can explode?

I saw that film! It was "Scanners - The Muppet Version"

I'm actually sitting here at work in Hamburg, and just read the link. I think the new pope is still hording all the headlines, local news hasn't covered this. I just asked my colleague, who lives in Altona, if he'd anything about his neighboring toads exploding. First, he thought he just didn't understand my German. Then his response (roughly translated) was "WHAT is doing WHAT and WHERE??!!!!"

Catherine - depending on how long your work day is (do you work 9a-5pm), y'all may actually want to visit the lake tonight to see if this story is true.

Be sure to report back here later.

This sounds vaguely like some weird religious ritual on the part of the toads...

*new regional insult*

"Yo mama is so fat, I am concerned that her entrails might be projected up to three feet when she explodes."

MOTW: at the moment, we're trying to figure out where exactly it is. We'll see if we can find it...

MOTW - I want to offer my condolences re your double post problem, which has been going on for days now.
Let me be the first to say that I enjoy your posts so much :) that I don't mind reading them twice at all -

Suggestion: Have you tried Ritalin? :)

MOTW - another suggestion - please excuse the technical jargon -

after you press Post - when the baby blue thingy at the bottom of the page gets one third of the way across, press the red X at the top of the page, then press the green refresh arrows. Your post will be there.

This works for me and I gave the advise to U.O and he says it works for him.

If you ever see a double post by me, it's coz I let it go too far.

I'm sure we've all said THIS once in our lives: "Werner Smolnik" anagrams to "lemon wrinkles."

Sondra, I go about three-five seconds, hit STOP, but it still double posts.
I'm trying a different browser to see if that helps.

Yeah, well, I did not know (not knot no) that I'd have this much trouble ... don't blame Sondra ... it's not the operator's manual, it's the operator ...

Besides which already ...

Holy Amphibians, Batman! If those are female toads and they grow "several times larger than normal" ... then that certainly makes them some Big Mothers ...

to quote Herman Munster: "Darn, darn, darn!"

MOTW - I think the blog just likes you. Look, it posted your last post twice - two minutes apart.

We all love you, MOTW - not to worry!

ooops!

Hee Hee Hee!

The technique is called Bloggus interruptus.

post-control-pills are much more effective. There have been attempts to create a "morning after" post-control-pill but conservative elements of our society have been able to keep them from coming to market.

I wonder what is the new pope's stance on this issue.

Vielen Dank, MKJ. Apparently exploding frogs are news in Austria, but not here.

Update for MOTW, we've located the "Pond of Death" in the Altona Cemetary (somehow appropriate). But it's closed off, as reported. Sorry.

All Right! Everyone remain calm. Deep Breathely!

As to the double posts: I've had the giggles on several of these lately ... let's just enjoy what little amusement they offer ... it's not a major catastrophe, and it's not another sign of the apocalypse (I hope) ...

Whenever I get one of my own, I'm reminded of a bar back home in Nodak ... (bar may be a keyt word here ... so pay attention ...)

The full/entire name of the place is:

Bitchin' Bob's Bar
Bitchin' Bob's Bar
So nice, they named it twice

I am not making this up.

Dart : be careful not to burn tongue

Yah. Burnt toad tongue is not very tasty, egg or no.

It's the Attack of the Splodeytoads!

www.imdb.com
www.IMDB.com

www.imdb.com - Okay the blog totally would not even let me post the LETTERS to that site before. What the heck?

Yah. Burnt toad tongue is not very tasty, egg or no.

Did they ever find anything beyond the bird theory?
