It's Raining Frogs

Throughout history, there have been tales of it raining frogs. 

These stories, as crazy as they may seem, are actually real events! 

From Biblical tales of Egyptian storms to British towns suddenly finding themselves covered with frogs falling from the sky - all of these occurances are recorded fact.

One reason for such events are that a wind storm passes over a pond or lake teaming with frogs, picking them up and dumping them elsewhere!

The arrival of the Deadly Frogs is imminent.


Granny Smith and the Deadly Frogs

Of course Granny Smith’s real name wasn’t Granny but everyone called her Granny. It wasn’t because she was a grandmother, though she was three times over, but rather because as a child she had loved apples, would take one to school for her lunch each and every day. It seemed that wherever she went an apple went with her and so associated with the fruit had she become that eventually some bright spark had nicknamed her Granny Smith after that popular Australian variety of apple.
