Cool info, thanks.
Personally, I like frog legs. You just have to clean them and season them
properly so that they do not taste too fishy.

Wonder if there are any period examples of whirligigs? Gig
is also something some do to frogs. The animals, not the French.
the device used today to catch frogs was originally invented to pull an
armored knight off his horse (in a much larger version) and get him down
where the foot soldiers could deal with him summarily, it could be
thought of as a medieval version of a LAAWs rocket---------later it was
adapted to catching food
ie: from gigging FROGS to gigging frogs.................; )
altho, having tasted frogs legs, i have always wondered...... why
(other than the Moulin Rouge variety anyway).............; )
