No man is an island...but a frog is!

Esau

"Hi-ho Kermit, Away!!!"

Brent Robbins

"I really need to quit eating so much cheese."

Chris

The tale of St. Christopher was greatly exaggerated.

Stuart Little III: The Frog Wars

o.h.

But the mouse, having attended a public high school that taught Of Mice and Men rather than Hesiod, was taken completely by surprise.

The Mouse and the Frog, seen swimming together shortly before the arrival of the Hawk.

Realist

Hmmm, a frog-mouse union makes a "fromo"??

For some reason, the hyperlink is not working, so try the link above.

**Nothing spoils a good Internet joke like having to explain it because of a technology failure.**

Josiah

From Aesop's Fables:

A MOUSE who always lived on the land, by an unlucky chance formed an intimate acquaintance with a Frog, who lived for the most part in the water. The Frog, one day intent on mischief, bound the foot of the Mouse tightly to his own. Thus joined together, the
Frog first of all led his friend the Mouse to the meadow where they were accustomed to find their food. After this, he gradually led him towards the pool in which he lived, until reaching the very brink, he suddenly jumped in, dragging the Mouse with him. The Frog enjoyed the water amazingly, and swam croaking about, as if he had done a good deed. The unhappy Mouse was soon suffocated by the water, and his dead body floated about on the surface, tied to the foot of the Frog. A Hawk observed it, and, pouncing upon it with his talons, carried it aloft. The Frog, being still fastened to the leg of the Mouse, was also
carried off a prisoner, and was eaten by the Hawk.

o.h.

I still think Hesiod is more apropos to the photo than Aesop.

"Are you SURE he'll turn into Mickey if I kiss him?"

"I hate sneaking around like this, but I hear that Miss Piggy has a black belt in karate."

What the well-dressed frog will be wearing this year.

"Atleast I haven't got a monkey on my back."

bill912

He ain't heavy...he's my Brother-Rat!"

bill912

All right...I'll stop for a while(and the masses cheer!).

Mary Kay

The newest fur hatware for this season.

Species-blind casting for Aesop's "The Frog and the Scorpion"

Crowdad

New organic mouse-trap technology is suprisingly effective.

Vince C

One of these days I'm gonna have this annoying frog-shaped growth removed!

Oh great! That's NOT the place I wanted to get warts!

David B.

Very funny, Jimmy.

I suppose this hapless frog, receiving a bath-salt medication for rodentitus, would like to know that you are exploiting his malady for some cheap laughs! I hear that run-over possums are hilarious, too!

At least I'M not with the goats on this one!

Esau

David B.,
I was waiting for somebody to post something like that one!!!

H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!!

David B.

Thank you, Esau.

This photo just proves that bein' green has never REALLY been easy. Stupid Kermit.

Esau

Hey, I'm also president of the Personality Cult for Kermit, so back off!

(Now, where dem' Frog Legs resteraunt plans go???)

Kris

After days of struggle, the epic battle between amphibian and rodent eroded into a dull but relaxing stalemate.

esquire

Well I'll be. Rick Santorum was right.

Jamie Beu

Why has nobody posted this yet?!?

Said the mouse to the frog, "No! It is I who will eat you!"

Jamie Beu,
I was just about to! Now I got nothin'.

Jeff Vehige

That poor mouse. How dare you make a mockery out of his helplessness. It's obvious that the frog is doing something charitable for the mouse, and you're using it to get your jollies. One would think that a Catholic apologist such as yourself would understand what charity is all about.

Sheesh.

John E

"I gotta tell ya, Mr. Toad's wild ride is so overrated!"

David B.,
I think you've got some competition from Jeff here!

As for me, I'm glad I'm not as spiritually destitute as the rest of ya folks! (NOT!)

;^)

John E

You got it Jeff Vehige! What's next?! I suppose someone is going to say that the frog looks like Yoda or the alien from The Last Star Fighter?! What kindness and charity displayed by all you idiots who posted hear -- all y'all! If that was a mouse on Jimmy Akin I bet all you members of the Jimmy Akin personality cult wouldn't be so fast to crack your jokes then, would ya now, huh?! Jeff, you and I are so much better than these arrogant self-righteous fools! Until I see more charitable postings and I get a personal public apology from Jimmy Akin that I can post on my personal website, I am so not visiting this pathetic site again for awhile!

For fairly new visitors: kidding!

Okay, John E. won it (I think) hands-down!

John E: LOL!

"Yes, that Island ... how much for the ride, again?

Brett Cooper

Frog: "I live in two worlds. I'm dangerous."
Mouse: "I don't care, you move me."

Mary

How pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!

Greg Elsbernd

There's a mouse on the frog, on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea......

PMcGrath

Jiminy Cricket, no one picked up on the obvious one:

Froggie went a'courtin' and he did ride,
With Miss Mousie by his side ...

Esau

Hey, my wife may look like a toad, but I do love her!

"Sure, he swims a lot better than me; but it's murder on my skin."

Elements of the 2nd Battalion of the US Marine Corp Rodentia Brigade embarked upon their first amphibious assault.

"...and as the flood waters from Hurricane Katrina slowly receded, even the city rats, cruelly abandoned by the Bush Administration, were forced to find refuge anywhere they could. Anderson Cooper, CNN, New Orleans."

Betty

Look! It's Reepicheep on the Dawn-toader, heading to Aslan's Country!

A.Williams

...."Honey...for our next vacation you need to take a tour with me of the Nabisco bakery!"

John (idm)

"Towed by a toad"

Gene Branaman

No, y'all got it all wrong! This is obviously a publicity still from the forthcoming CGI Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles movie! That's Donatello & Splinter!

Gene Branaman

Before that incident with the radioactive canister.

(Isn't it always a radioactive canister?)

Anyway, the graphics are amazing. So photo-realistic!

Neal

Get along, little froggie!

bill912

"That's the last time I'll ever book a cruise from *that* Mickey Mouse travel agency!"

bill912

"If this is the Catholic Answers cruise, where are Jimmy and Karl?"

Mary Kay

"She's got a ticket to ride, she's got a ticket to ri-i-i-ide, she's got a ticket to ride - and she don't care."
