    I’m reminded of a Monty Python sketch.

    I heard “Jingle Bells” before I read the caption.

    I wonder how it sounds. Also, don’t hit them too hard.

    John and Bleeb must be taking some vacation time.

    Those frogs appear to be missing their legs! Check the cafeteria menu!

    It takes real talent to get a clear sounding ribbit from the frogs! Depending where it’s hits means a lot.

    The kids were inspired by Michigan J. Frog singing and dancing to Have a Holly Jolly Christmas and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. [These frogs have not been so inspired.]

    Carol of the Bells is likely my favorite Christmas song.

    So that’s where they sourced the frogs we dissected in my HS freshman year biology class.

    After the performance, they’ll be serving frogs legs for lunch.

    Budget cuts. They had to sell the bells for scrap to pay the power bill.

    I actually saw a real performance like this done with a choir of actors dressed as students of Gryffindor and holding hand puppets that looked like big frogs. They performed at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Good fun!
