    I love that movie. Awesome. The seer. The world was spinning greased grooves. Swing dancing. Love. Nick Nolte. Debra Winger. Whores. Drunks. Fun for all.

    The scene in the book is told from the frog's perspective, has to be one of the funniest things I've ever read in my life. :D

    "Destroying the frogs is not easy, however. The Gironde fisheries protection association attacked a pond full of bullfrogs with electricity a few years ago. The frogs fought back. The hunters battled with them for two hours. They killed just one frog before they gave up."


    damn do the French surrender to everything

    They fought their hardest,but in the end, the frogs had the strongest most powerful forces they had ever seen. It was inevitable.
