Lock Up Them Frogs

It's time for another science piece, isn't it? I mean, what with all the stuff going on right now we all need a little break right? So I started digging, and really didn't need to go very far. The title screamed "PICK ON ME!" in large neon letters......


"Japan Calls Frog Emergency Over Fungus"





Hold on everyone, please, we need your cooperation. This is a Frog Emergency. If you'll all please exit the building in single file, no one will get hurt. I repeat, this is a Frog Emergency.

Seriously.

Apparently there have been as many as FIVE FROG DEATHS. FIVE. Like, one - two - three - four - FIVE. The World Wide Fund for Nature has officially declared a state of emergency. For real. This fungus will kill the frogs if they are exposed, and people are urged to watch their amphibious friends more closely. The chances of it killing humans is.........zero. Nada. Zilch. Negative chance. Harmless to humans.

BUT!

Big state of emergency. If we aren't careful, as many as TEN FROGS could be dead by morning. So bring in your froggies, allow them to share your soft pillow if you have to, this is about Life and Death! If we're not careful, this could spread to.........(cue the dramatic music...) the GOLDFISH population!!!

*the author of this blog means no harm to the squirmy, slimy, but oh-so fabulous little buggars, and is only poking fun at those who have made them their single purpose for living. I love frogs. Go frogs.

i love frogs! I am leaping to action here ... I say we get some celebrities to sing a few songs to aid in getting the awareness out.
