Frogs on sticks, anyone?

I need the weekend to sort out my dim-wittedness that I referred to yesterday. So here instead is a delicacy.

Apologies to anyone with a weak constitution.

Aww, they are so cute with their little folded leggies and plump ickle botties.

Seems almost a shame to rip them apart with my chompers. But not enough - yummy - tastes like chicken.


Word veri = dectin (n), a short, thin length of spearmint flavour twine, used to extract frog gristle from between your teeth.

Rebecca said...

oooh -froggies. Have you tried them?

Bangkok Expat Mama said...

Sad. Guess that's why we don't hear their "phantom cow" chorus near our respective buildings anymore...if it's not that they've become someone's snack, it may be because the landowner who owns the derelict, half-razed house where the frogs used to congregate, finally cleared out all the wild vegetation in hopes of selling...

Bea, that's so horrible. And your word verification is a downright lie.

Rebecca, I tried French ones years ago which didn't feel quite so awful. They were only legs but the whole thing? Ewegh. No.

BEM, They've raped it, haven't they? I used to love peering through those gates into all that overgrown undergrowth. I was just waiting for some rain to see if the frogs would moo again.

There are some strange delicacies out there. Think I'll stick to tuna, etc. Mind you, wouldn't want to try eating that from a stick.

Strange, my word verification: dectic !

Flowerpot said...

somehow lost my appetite....!

Queenie said...

Wonder whether that's where T Pratchett got his idea for 'rat onna stick'. What are the wriggly-looking things behind the frogs, with the 1 baht sign on top?

Denise said...

Um, pass thanks. No, really, I had a very large toad for lunch...

Do you ever try any of these lovelies?

SpiralSkies said...

I can't help wondering where the stick goes... :0( Eeeurghhh

Debs, hmmm, it's not for me. I get more and more squeamish about meat, the older I get.

Flowerpot, :-( sorry about that!

Queenie, you know, sometimes I think it's better not to know these things. (ie: I don't know.)

Denise, NO! But Husband does. He's eaten a range of bugs from the bug man and says they're like crisps.

Jen, eeewggh.

DJ, sorry, a bit repulsive, no?
