Just for the record: on frog boiling.

If the frog boiling thing is a fiction, at least it's a useful one.

So all this time I've been making frog soup the wrong way?

Thank you! Ever since I discovered that the frog's brain must be removed I've found that anecdote painfully annoying.


#6

you only add frog brain at the end, lightly poached, otherwise you ruin your frog soup. overcooked frog brain is awful rubbery.

We’ve been solving the ‘‘other people’’ problems

More like meddling and making other people's problems worse...I wish some people would be less helpful, but bless their heads, they think they are doing something constructive -- fiction distracts them so the rest of humanity can get away from them...
