Or YOU.

It's illegal now, but back in the day, you'd put a quarter in the machine, it'd light up, and a chicken would dance for about half a minute. Turns out, it just turned on a hot plate, making the chicken dance around. Good times, not for the chicken though.

I bet a lot of chickens who have been ravaged by Republicans would welcome that now. Out of the frying pan and onto the fire, so to speak.

I like how they're blaming global warming for the frogs dying especially right in front of the dead frogs (evidently, global warming not only kills frogs, it packages them too, what CAN'T global warming do?)

Dead for Tax Reasons: knows how to make a frog dance


Between this, the obvious and studebaker posting one of my personal favorite 'classic' gifs of all time, I do think it is safe to shut this thread down.

/anyone made a reference about that being why the legs taste so good?
//oh. well then. make sure last person out locks up

Seriously though, I love science as much as the next socialist-American. But we already have frogs. Do these ones poop out something that cures disease? No? Then get back to work labcoat racks.

Someone's gotta provide the music to dance to.
And someone needs to reference an animated frog other than Michigan J.

If they aren't extinct now, they will be after Doc Hopper's French Fried Frog Legs gets their hands on them.

Only the males were doing it.  Female frogs don't need to stretch?  It was a mating display.

Chuck Jones knew that back in 1955.  Television viewers knew it some 40 years later as well
when the WB network debuted.  Usually they are named "Michigan J." and perform only if just
one person is around; if someone else appears, they stop, drop, and go "brrrraaapppp..."
