The phrase “Barrel Full of Bull Frogs” is suffering due to overuse. CNN and FOX News are the worst offenders, with the Times and Post not far behind. Attached to everything from the struggles in Libya to a recent Papal visit, the phrase runs the risk of losing its connection to reality.

Specifically, my local social club/charity/old men’s organization primary method of service is literally filling a barrel with Bull Frogs and either dumping it on the heads of young cancer patients or forcing them to eat their way through it to get to the prize at the bottom (usually a pair of roller skates for those who still have legs or a $50 gift certificate for glitter and hair care products from Dusty’s Hygiene Emporium out on Route 18).

We’re a 501(c)3 organization.
