Frogs and some other things

These colorful little critters are all over this planet of ours. They begin their life in the shape of a little egg underwater. Then shortly after they resemble a little fish-like creature, which is known as a tadpole, swimming around in the water as they slowly mature into an adult frog. Some folks enjoy frogs so much that they collect all of the porcelain, plastic, and glass figurines that they can get their hands on. There are people out there who love eating the delicacy of frog legs, however I figure it would take an awful lot of them to fill up your stomach. These little frogs also must certainly help out in controlling the fly population on our planet as well. In fairy tales a princess kissed a frog tuning him into a prince, and of coarse everyone has heard of Kermit the frog. There are nearly 5,000 different known species of frogs in this world. In this hub we are going to explore a few of these different species of frogs as well as take an equal look at different words that rhyme with the word frog.

When we put all of this together we get .......................

...........On a cold morning both a hog and a dog wearing a tog jogged through a bog in the smog, accidentally tripped over a log hidden by the fog, dropping their cog and spilling half of their eggnog while on the way to met with Mr. Frog. "THE END"

LMAO. Was this during a spot of boredom when the mind was twirling in a bog thinking about frogs after too much spiked nog?

In many colleges like medicine, science and pharmacy they use frogs to train the students in anatomy sections, and thousands of frogs are killed because some people think it is useful.
