For obvious reasons, Fark frog sex threads always bring back memories of this particularly depressing article from 2015 about really unattractive túngara frogs acting as wingmen for their slightly handsomer brethren.

"The inevitable question: What's in it for the decoy? It could be that he and the other male are engaging in a mutually beneficial friendship, whereby each takes turns acting like an inferior male to give the other a mating boost (frog bros?). In that case, they would probably be genetically related (actual bros!), so that boosting each other's mating success would also be helping to support their own gene pool. But Lea thinks there is a likelier-and sadder-reason.
Perhaps the decoy has no choice. After all, like the peacock, the túngara frog is a species in which the male's sole purpose is to mate. True, even if he keeps calling, he's probably not going to get a mate. But if he doesn't call at all, then he definitely won't. So no matter how spindly, how unattractive, or how woefully inadequate he may be, the decoy is doomed to just keep calling, and calling, and calling-even when there's no one there to answer. 'I've seen these guys die in the field mid-call,' says Lea sadly. 'He's just doing the best he can.'"


Keep croaking, my friends.

But the females are right to only choose the best mates to produce the best offspring. Females have to invest a lot more (usually) in the next generation, so only top genes make it. If all the weak, spindly frogs got to mate, eventually they'd end up with Idiocracy...

Yup, since Idiocracy is about us...

Kinda my point.
