Many, many Americans eat frog. Folks go frog gigging to catch them, then clean them, de-leg them and prepare the frog legs. Most times they're battered and fried like most sea foods here in the southern US.

The Punk Frogs did have some interesting weapons, with them having an axe, a lasso/whip, a bow with exploding arrows, etc.

Seeing them use weapons like that but also being able to leap into the air and off the walls like frogs...they'd actually be formidable enemies if written well.

Don't knock it till you try it. I bet you don't eat rabbit either?
Anyway frog legs are great, taste like fish.

Ha really? Can't say I expected that since frogs are not even fish. But oh well whale tastes like tuna and it's not a fish either.

I don't eat rabbit either, no. Definitely would never in a million years touch frog legs, I have some dignity.

Just because humans can eat every animal in the world doesn't mean we should. You guys want to eat monkey brains too? Because you can eat that as well...I sure as hell ain't eating the actual brain of another animal.

I haven't eaten brain but I have eaten the spinal cord of chicken, I expect the brain to taste similarly.

On topic of the Punk Frogs, how about turning them into clothing instead of eating them?

See, here's the thing I don't get; the four original frogs make for a more interesting set of evil anti-turtle counterparts; raised and trained by an evil master, carrying the names of three conquerors and an unsavory individual, who use martial arts to combat the turtles. And yet, the OT treated them like doofuses, and other incarnations mostly ignored them. They could be what the dark turtles were, and more interesting; it's not four clones of the original guys, but four 'this is what you could've been if Shredder raised you instead of splinter' enemies for the TMNT to fight.

Yet everybody hates them because they came from the OT and acted dumb there and nobody can see the potential.

They COULD be done well. But there's no room for them in IDW (except maybe as henchfrogs of Toad Baron, which will be INO) and Nick certainly bungled their appearance. But then, Nick didn't do very well with most reimaging of characters...

You are quite correct, the frogs have been used as nothing but wasted potential.

I have always--ALWAYS--said that there are no bad characters, just bad writers.

Punk Frogs, Ace Duck, Venus de Milo, Tokka and Rahzar...

They could ALL be excellent viable characters if written competently. That's one of my favorite things about IDW... seeing terrible characters get revamped and portrayed as legitimate characters that I can take seriously.

Well, as seriously as anybody can take two bungling henchmutants with musical gang names.

I liked the Nick idea of the Frogs being a colony rather than just 4 Frogs. From the looks of things IDW is doing something similar with the Toad Baron having a lot of Frog followers.

I would not be surprised if 4 of those Frogs get mutated down the line somehow. Or maybe the Toad Baron can use mystical/magic power to create himself 4 Frog Warriors...and that would be IDW's version of the Punk Frogs.

That- actually makes sense. I am kind if curious who this Toad Baron is, as I have to wait until IDW puts out the trades of their TMNT books. So I'm a bit behind on the series.

Just a heads up, Toad Baron will be in volume 2 of TMNT Universe. No release date yet though.

On that note, I still have no idea what the difference between a frog and a toad are. Aren't they like the same thing? Why do we have two different names for them?

The main difference is their skin. Toads have thicker, rougher, drier and more "warty" skin because they live in drier environments while frogs tend to stay closrr to water. Both grow from tadpoles but toads can burrow to keep from drying out while frogs generally need to spend time in water or in a wet sheltered spot to avoid dehydrating.

Why has this thread turned into a discussion about eating frogs?

I really like their weapons but I agree on who's writing them.

Have to disagree there. Their first appearance was terrific stuff.

Maybe you should stop posting here for a few weeks to see if you can spend your time on something better than taking an entire week coming up with ineffective insults? Like visit a therapist maybe? Then again, Cylons and a few others here think you already see therapists on a daily basis, in that case you ought take their advice to heart, maybe then your internet access won't be so limited anymore.

I understand you guys are concerned and I'm sure a previous user here who provided more useful contributions than you guys loves being talked about behind his back.

You three really are the shining examples of this board: allowing people to have a different opinion on something they love while making sure they stick to the topic. You three are why people come to this site and love talking about aspects of fandom like the 80s cartoon without being ridiculed, why people love talking about stuff they like. As a token of this mental patient aka a Fred Wolf troll apologist I decided to not only report your posts but report you to admin as well. I couldn't think of nicer people who deserve this. Right, apparently see you next Thursday.
