I don't think Hallmark makes a thank you card for this

Jes and Roger recently returned from their trip to the Philippines. Jes posted a few times and one happened to be a quiz of sorts. Well I guessed correctly and she promised me a prize. This, my friends, was the promised prize.

I'ts a coin purse made out of a dead frog. Yes a REAL . . . . . DEAD . . . . . . FROG. The eyes have been replaced with googlie eyes and the inside has been lined with satin, but other than that this thing is all frog, well except for the zipper on its bottom half.

but katie, you can't forget the most important part: HIS TONGUE IS STILL INSIDE HIS MOUTH.

i think you should do a few close-ups and enlargements. i'm very proud of my find.

OH my word! He is a cute lil guy though.. I doubt anybody would be desperate enough to steal money from his lil body..

If this is any indicator of what is to come of my "hanging-out-with-Jes" time to recap our trips...i think i may have to decline.
yikes Jessica!

I think you got the "boobie" prize.

(Am I allowed to use the word boobie on Kpinion?)


That someone would replace the real eyes with googlie eyes... somehow I find this funny. And yes... I want to see the frog's tongue.

Life would be soooo much easier with a zipper like that....

yes people the tongue is still in the mouth, and JES suggested that i take a picture of me kissing the frog to see if it is my prince, but as steve pointed out this frog does have a zipper on the bottom half of his body, and as easy as life might be (at least in steve's mind) I'm not sure if I want my prince to have a zipper on his bottom half

I can just imagine the responses you'd receive if you took that out of your purse and put it on the counter at Kroger, or Target, or anywhere else for that matter.

Is it slimy? He he he, his zippered bottomed half. He's lined in satin? Who thinks of that kind of stuff. Who wants that job?? Scooping out frog guts and sewing in satin.

I'm dry heaving. But Ben's cracking me up.
