    Default Why you shouldn't eat Frog's Legs.

    Frogs can be infected with the plerocercoid (intermediate larval) stage of a cestode species from the genus Spirometra of tapeworms. These larva are acquired through ingestion of an invertebrate intermediate host and subsequently encyst in frogs tissue. Specifically, Spirometra erinacei encysts in the muscle and lymph tissue of the rear legs leading to fluid retention and the noticeable edema. The frog serves as a 2nd intermediate host (paratenic=transfer) host, after which it is eaten by a mammalian predator where it becomes an adult tapeworm and thus completes the life cycle. Unfortunately, once infected there is little hope for the frog.

    Furthermore, it is a cruel industry, and shouldn't exist.

    Also, they are nasty, and it's a gay thing to do.

    That is all.

    Don't eat frog's legs.

    While there are some few Latin species names, none of that was written in French.

    I meant that the French traditionally eat frog's legs the most often.

    Frogs aren't invertebrates.

    No, see the parasite gets into a fly, which is the invertebrae, and the frog swallows that.

    You know, I actually went back and retyped it to clarify the fact that Spirometra are tapeworms because I thought it may confuse people if I only listed scientific names... It never occurred to me that my terminology would confuse people.

    Basically, Solly is correct.

    Luckily, I am a wise genius, so I wasn't fooled.

    Or, more likely, you, being Jewish, have large amounts of money invested in a frog leg-selling company's stock, and as such, know every detail of the business.

    Actually, that's the French's job.

    The difference being: People do not often consume their own feces, yet they do ingest frogs legs with some frequency. Duh.

    It's relative in a way that both are at the top of the list for the most disgusting things eaten by humans. Third would be escorgot, and fourth; animal penis.

    It's for this reason that I no longer find you to be completely and totally useless. You should be funny more often and assholish less frequently. K?
