Frog flap

It won't be long before some call for the building of frog fences and illuminated culverts to ensure safe passage

First it was agitated deer talkers accusing Oak Bayers of  despicable acts  and now along come the frog freaks (Oak Bay News March 13) to count the unmercifully squashed amphibian corpses on Victoria’s wet roads after dark and wanting us to redeem our sins by building frog fences and illuminated culverts to ensure safe passage for our anuran city dwellers.

But can we really take them seriously when they identify one of the now local species as “pancake frogs” –   is that a sick joke or what?

Beware Victorians, for I say unto you that the way things are going, it won’t be long before we are all being held to account by some,  for the demise of the dinosaurs.

Courage mes braves.
