"The Really Real Frog Band! Real Frogs!" Outfitted with miniature clarinets, drums, and other instruments are a band of stuffed amphibians. Has Reynolds gotten any complaints from the tip?
"No. They'd look at it, they'd say, 'Do these frogs play?'
and I'd say, 'Well, they used to.'
'Are they real frogs?'
'They're real frogs.'
'Why don't they play?'
'They're dead'"
(Taylor 1997, 22-23).
Alas, I do not recall the name of the site I got this text from… but I Hope you enjoy the picture it inspired.

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog, Emily-- I have a snippet from a pretzel box above my drawing board that says "Individually Twisted!" Words to live by.

And I see you do too! There are so many delicious curiosities on your site. This piece in particular knocked my sox off-- I actually saw some of those dead-frog diaramas as a child, which is probably one of the influences that warped me for life.

I've bookmarked your blog & will be back for more!
