Frog Fancier

Archie Beesley, frog fancier, liked to eat them live. Just like oysters, he said, they helped with "cleaning out the stomach."

One question: Which direction does the "CLEANING" take? Down & Brown or Up and Out?

I believe I'd like an Anthrax Ripple to go with my Crunchy Frog, please.

An old, real, heard-from-several-sources piece of advice was that if you eat a live toad every morning, nothing worse will happen to you that day. But eating a frog? What a pervert!

Eating toads was once a job!

"Early 19th century: said to be a contraction of toad-eater, a charlatan's assistant who ate toads; toads were regarded as poisonous, and the assistant's survival was thought to be due to the efficacy of the charlatan's remedy."
