Default *Some Frog*

"Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it."
— E. B. White

opallady on 2009-05-31 16:50:29
The frog is supposed to be dead before you start.

bansaisequoia on 2009-09-21 20:08:13
If the frog is alive, it is vivisection, not dissection.

No frogs were harmed in the above analyses of this humorous quote.

tjsrc on 2013-11-12 12:23:07
The joke, however, was severely damaged and is in critical condition.

SippyGurl on 2014-06-09 04:50:25
lol folks

kb83 on 2014-08-14 04:27:13
I think E. B. White would have been amused by these comments.

montyb on 2014-11-16 08:48:09
Probably, had he dissected them.

LLapp on 2015-04-26 19:35:10
And there would have been a spider web in the lab, spelling out: SOME FROG.

abra on 2015-06-08 09:35:57
If the frogs are euthanized in order to be dissected, doesn't that make Mr. White's statement correct? The frog does die. I hated dissecting that frog. I could have learned as much by looking at pictures, or one of those awful movies, they showed us back then. Many frog lives would have been saved.

marnita on 2015-11-04 11:56:34
I cut class five times and got a D in biology in college to avoid dealing with one of those dead frogs.

LLapp on 2016-02-27 13:47:16
I have a good friend who made headlines back in the late 1980s for designing software that allowed a high school bio student to virtually dissect a frog. The student, like you marnita, was penalized because she refused to dissect the real frog, and she sued the school district and demanded an alternative method. With the software available, the state ruled in her favor.

marnita on 2016-03-04 15:01:02
You have restored my faith in progress, LLapp!

abra on 2016-03-14 12:58:36
I must have missed the SOME FROG comment before. I love it. How appropriate.

"The least thing upset him on the links. He missed short putts because of the uproar of butterflies in the adjoining meadows."
— P. G. Wodehouse

bansaisequoia on 2012-03-27 16:28:26
Those butterflies are real party animals. And they're always blasting Heart's "Dog And Butterfly" from the speakers of their tricked out vehicles as they go to keggers and raves. Not to mention Elton John's "Someone Saved My Life Tonight."

vivian1874 on 2012-04-28 04:30:08
hahaha!

montyb on 2012-12-16 21:12:04
I can attest to those loquaciuos lepidopterans. They stay quiet until you complete your back swing. Then they cut loose.

abra on 2014-02-14 09:59:46
Do they really have a fondness for Elton John? I never knew that.

momof7 on 2014-07-08 17:02:30
He who has all the answers is probably a teenager.

. . bio - Unattributed was a verb (whatever country that is) and was often found in the company of Nouns (whoever they are) . . .

Unattributed on 2015-06-28 12:09:11
What, me and Nouns? No...why, did Nouns say something about me?

tgreen517 on 2015-08-28 17:46:42
The adjectives described it all!

"Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. "
— Oprah Winfrey

bansaisequoia on 2012-07-13 19:35:55
Sure. Oprah takes the bus when her limo breaks down. And I have to pilot the space shuttle when the matter/antimatter reintegrator pods have bollixed up the dilithium crystals on my starship.

montyb on 2012-07-23 21:31:40

Remembering Dorothy Parker as best I can right now: “if all the co-eds at the Yale-Harvard game were laid end-to-end, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised.”

abra on 2014-11-20 10:42:55
That IS one of Dorothy Parker's snarkiest and funniest quotes.

"The reason that there are so few women comics is that so few women can bear being laughed at." — Anna Russell

patsy86 on 2011-05-12 04:49:02
Now there are many, but back in the 1950's Anna was a groundbreaker

montyb on 2012-04-11 00:34:40
And her recording "The Ring of the Nibelungs (An Analysis)" is a classic. I laugh my head off every time I hear it.

I've taken the liberty to leave out some of the comments, but only because I went to utube to find out WHY it made Monty laugh!! It's there, in 3 separate parts....and WELL worth the watching, folks! I can't thank Monty enough for making that singular comment. I haven't laughed that much in a long time! Anna was a truly gifted pianist, singer and comic.....I'd go to the opera every night if she was still around!!!
just google " Anna Russell-the ring of the Nebelung (an analysis) 1/3

Default Picking up on the classical music commentary

gryhnd51, I checked the videos of Anna Russell -- she was great!! Her approach reminds me a little of "New Horizon's in Music Appreciation," in which Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach) acts as the baseball-style commentator on a performance of Beethoven's 5th Symphony. It's hilarious and also educational: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0vHpeUO5mw

universalmom on 2014-01-20 09:52:25
And there needs to be.

oddcouple on 2015-07-12 08:03:49
Is that a fact or a hypothesis?
