My father, who has always been one who appreciates good food and is not intimidated by cooking it, once bought a tin of canned frogs' legs. It was one of those number ten cans, about 6 lbs in weight. The intent was to saute them in butter and garlic. The thing that sticks in my mind about the whole episode is that there were only left legs in the can.
Now we all remember that line from The Muppet Movie from the scene in which Doc Hopper, the frog-leg-restaurant-chain-king and Kermit the Frog standoff:
Kermit the Frog: I look at you, at your business, and all I can think about is frogs on crutches.
And it was all I could think about when my father announced this observation over plates of grey-green finger food.
I seem to have lost my copy of the screenplay to The Muppet Movie, if anyone can correct this quotation, I would appreciate it.
