The things some people eat

The other day, someone (a son, possibly) mentioned "live frog sushi", and I thought,  surely not. There just cannot be such a thing....can there? Reader, I foolishly googled it.

 I stood it for about five seconds, and then switched off. But I cannot get out of my head the pathetic image of the severed top half of a poor wretched frog, waving its arms and gasping from its all-too-human-looking mouth on a bed of something weird on a serving plate.

I told my brother about this on the phone, but before I'd even said don't google this! he already had. I just hope he's now sleeping better than I am.

  2. I presumed you were doing to tell us it was a joke. Luckily I didn't google it.

    1. I'm really wishing I hadn't, Wendy. What is WRONG with these people?

  3. It does sound horrible, but for the frog I don't suppose it matters much whether someone sticks their fork into it before or after the cadaveric spasms have ceased.

    1. It wouldn't matter so much if the spasms were cadaveric, Patsy, but this poor thing was definitely alive.

  4. I won't google it either. The stuff of nightmares. Even killed humanely I wouldn't eat a frog's leg.

    1. Apologies, Frances. I'll try to think up something jolly for next time.

  7. Yuk - that sounds absolutely awful and I can't believe you can google a photo (which I won't)!

    1. DT, I just say what happens to be on my mind at the time. And that certainly was.

  9. Well Frances I suppose we should all know what unpleasant things people do. However sometimes the kindest thing to do is not to share such obscene things. I had a nightmare last night about a wasp going down my ear (I dislike wasps intensely and there was one in the café yesterday morning when we had coffee) but I wouldn't tell anyone.

  10. The temptation is to google it but in second thoughts I don't think I'll bother. Sounds horrific.
