Intensive frog farming takes giant leap forward
Giant frog farms could satisfy western diners' apparently insatiable appetite for frog meat, if pioneering French research is put into practice.
That's not just good news for the Europe's menus, but also for Asia's frogs, which conservationists say are in danger of being eaten to extinction.
Farming would also mean frogs could be raised close to where they're eaten, which could reduce the spread of diseases that are threatening frog populations around the world.
But some ecologists and conservationists say that intensive frog farming could spawn a new range of problems.

There must be a huge Frog Body Mountain in France, since only the legs appeal.  Roll eyes

"Waiter! Do you have frogs legs?"
"No sir, I always walk like this."
(Well, someone had to say it.)

Croak! croak!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
