Never thought I'd read this article 

Hermaphrodite frogs linked to pesticide use. That pretty much says it all, doesn't it? Hard to avoid this piece when you're browsing the headlines. Conjures up fantastic images, too. Like a gang of frogs wearing tattered rags and shooting craps in a dark alley with needles full of DDT plugged between their toes. One of them, "Croaker," is splayed in the corner by a trash fire with a glossy look in his eye. He's seen far too much since his innocent years as a tadpole. Everytime someone rolls snake eyes, new genitalia appears.

Unrelated to the above, I can never say or write "DDT" without thinking of legendary wrestler Jake "The Snake" Roberts' finishing move.

Oh my, now I've just pictured two warring gangs of frogs giving each other DDTs, Jake Roberts-style. That one's a keeper.
