It turns out that Joaquin's brain is not -- repeat, not -- being eaten by a frog. We will have updates on this story as warranted.

Oh, thank heaven. I was losing sleep over this one.

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do the innuendo
We can dance and sing
When it’s said and done we haven’t told you a thing
We all know that crap is king
Give us dirty laundry!

Ya know, I can't blame him a bit.

Is it a coincidence that Keanu Reeves has a band named "Frogstar"?

Maybe Keanu and Joaquin both might have licked a few too many cane toads during their youth?

Or perhaps "frog" is a metaphor for "bad acting", in which case they both qualify.

K-Frog Federline, curtain call in 5 minutes!

Talk about leaping to conclusions...!

Proving once again that the media aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.

SO ashamed that I know this....but isn't Keanu Reeves' band called DOGstar?

Yeah, and doesn't the 'K' in K. Federline stand for 'Kermit?'

frog song: By the time I get to Phoenix, I'll be hungry...

I hear that frog a munchin'
It's biting through my brain
It might also be a newt,but
it's an am-phib-i-an

I'm stuck on the red carpet
They'll write down every word!
It gets published in the papers
No matter how absurd!

I talk in a strange language
That was made up by my friend
And they compare me to my brother
(who came to a bad end)

But I know I'm not an emperor
Or even Johnny Cash
Is it really truly likely
Someone believes this trash?

Shannon - Dogstar? Are you Sirius?

No, Sirius is dead.

Insom did it again!

Mr C - *SNORK*

I'm guessing that will go over a few heads.

Brainy Jello:

You're probably right, because we're, like, dumb and stuff.

Brainy - I dunno, this is a pretty literate lot... but when ya think about it, I guess Sirius IS over lots of people's heads.

This is why I try not to think about it.

He shouldn't have ruled that excuse out. I find I frequently need to reference that one.

Hubby: So dear, why are you home so late and smelling of an aftershave I don't recognize?

Me: Oh, a frog was eating my brain.

Hubby: Oh, alright then...

I've learned two things here:

1. Never trust the sources you find on the web (A dozen "Frogstar" band sites)

2. Never take the World Serious (Like the Yankees didn't)


Mr. C: you forgot the rim shot.

Here you go - *.!

You're welcome.

think most here have a passing knowlege of mythology;)

good one Mr. C!

pft. not all of us however, can spell.

BTW, it didn't go over my head, either. I meant Sirius Black, you know, from....Never mind.

Holy crap, I got props from Mudstuffin? I'm not worthy...

...and thanks to all of you. I'll be here all week, try the veal, don't forget to tip your waitresses.

Wait....maybe Brainy MEANT that it would literally be over our heads, and we didn't get it, because it went over our heads?

Southerngirl - yeah, go with that.

Southerngirl - I caught your reference as well as Mr. C's. I like your reference better, though.

DDT did a job on me
now I am a real sickie
guess I’ll have to break the news
That I got no mind to lose
all the girls are in love with me
I’m a teenage lobotomy

Slugs and snails are after me
DDT keeps me happy
now I guess I’ll have to tell ’em
That I got no cerebellum
gonna get my PHD
I’m a teenage lobotomy

GDoggstar - Certainly not. This is not a group to underestimate.

southerngirl - Thank you. I'm seeing a doctor about being too literal. Mrs. Jello insisted.


I'd like to think that any one of us, if we were under media scrutiny, would be capable of doing the same. Except it'd probably be more along the lines of "a weasel with a mullet is gnawing my oosik!"

he has a brain???

Good point, queensbee - that would be one hungry frog.

*Snork* at Annie Where-but-here

Or, we could say "please feel free to hump the nearest cactus," and "you suck dead oosiks."

Well, Ivory Bill wasn't here, and I felt it had to be said.

Mr Completely - excellent. One of the few decent '80s songs.

I fear that frog a'munchin',
A'munchin' on both ends,
And I ain't had a punchline
Since I don't know when.
Oh I dropped a shot of pheno,
Just to tell the truth.
But that frog keeps a'munchin'
Like my brain's a stale Baby Ruth

Come in Luther on the air guitar!

Buh deedee deedee dang dang.
Buh deedee deedee dang.
Buh deedee deedee dang...urk!...gak!

(Exits stage left again with hook around neck. FADE TO BLACK.)

And then there's the whole Phoenix thing ...

Here he goes thinking again!
