Frogs come in many varieties, both poisonous and benign, but none are so beloved as Pelophylax/Rana esculentes. Why do people like this amphibian so much? As a hint we'll give you the more common name: edible frog. With a taste described as similar to a chicken wing, they're a delicacy in many parts of the world. Cooking a frog can sometimes be unnerving because it looks as if it is still twitching while being cooked. This is because the cold-blooded animal doesn't enter rigor mortis as quickly as warm-blooded animals. In the U.S., these treats are typically fried with a cracker breading and served in restaurants along the Gulf Coast. As delicious as they can be, we can't imagine being part of the trial-and-error process to determine what was and what was not poisonous. We're fearful it may be similar to the Alzheimer's driving tests being performed on senior citizens. Or, even worse, it may be like bigblockautox's fable.
