SCORPIONS

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate THE FROG and the SCORPION and the fox as they cross the river. IT IS IN MY NATURE- says the SCORPION. IT IS MY NATURE. A SCORPION IS INDEED A SCORPION. Thanks for the Ride but sting you I must !

    

We keep an eye on the scorpion and the serpent, but we do not watch out for the millipede. Sicilian

   That’s the problem with them fables, they’re putting animals together that wouldn’t meet. I don’t know where a scorpion is knockin’ around with a frog.”
-Podcast Series 3, Episode Two

Butch glared balefully across the saloon at Tex, who had been stone dead since the scorpion he had unwittingly sat on had bitten him on the butt some half an hour or so ago, little suspecting that this was going to be his toughest staring contest since the one against old Glass-eyed Juan, during the great sand-storm of ‘42, at the height of the Arizona conjunctivitis epidemic.

“God did not give wings to scorpions.” 

If you are bitten by a scorpion in a dream, you will conquer your problems.

Those who go to examine the rainwater puddle will meet scorpions (around it).

FROGS

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life. They contemplate FROGS. Very fond of FROGS and in this extremely WET Summa 08 – frogs is everywhere. Green tree frogs taking a shine to the rear vision mirrors. Wee tiny one clinging to the screen door beside me. Strange yellow striped frog in the Star Wagon with the large spiders and plenty of Cane Toads. The Tough Crazies like the Cane Toads even though they ” ought ” not. Frogs it is. Take a look at Zen Frog while you’re at it.

FROGS

A number of frogs were traveling through the woods. Two of them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead.

The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all of their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead.

Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out.

When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

There’s ne’er a mile in Ireland’s Isle where the dirty vermin musters;
Where’er he put his dear forefoot he murdered them in clusters.
The toads went hop, the frogs went flop, slapdash into the water,
And the beasts committed suicide to save themselves from slaughter.
~Old Irish Song

Louise: “How did you get here?”
Johnny: “Well, basically, there was this little dot, right? And the dot went bang and the bang expanded. Energy formed into matter, matter cooled, matter lived, the amoeba to fish, to fish to fowl, to fowl to frog, to frog to mammal, the mammal to monkey, to monkey to man, amo amas amat, quid pro quo, memento mori, ad infinitum, sprinkle on a little bit of grated cheese and leave under the grill till Doomsday.”
~From the movie Naked

Though boys throw stones at frogs in sport, the frogs do not die in sport, but in earnest.
