Broken: Human body toy packaging

Frog_human_boSam G writes in:

I was at the Dollar Tree store and saw this educational children's toy labeled, "Human Body."

Obviously, the toy was actually a frog. Perhaps they are encouraging the theory of evolution.


like the dude with 4 arms would have been more accurate.

fantastic. gotta show that to a biology teacher.

Wow, the things they can do with genetics... human=frog

Posted by: Fuzzy at December 9, 2005 08:13 AM

which came first, the human or the frog?

Posted by: Nathan at December 9, 2005 08:27 AM

Well, it just looks like a frog now, but kiss it, and then see what it is...

gmangw: The four-armed guy is actually a famous work by Leonardo Da Vinci, who spent a great deal of time studying the human body, like proportion and muscle structure.

And it has absolutely NOTHING to do with a rubber frog. The frog is that a giant sperm inside him?

"The Four Legged Man"= Vitruvian Man

That's why it is one dollar. Wherever it was packaged the people can't read English.

P.S. leo did alot of study and disections of every living thing, humans anphibians, and animals- so this toy is replicating his anatomical study w/ fun froggy parts!

This is a great example of "Engrish". See the website for an explanation of how this ends up happening, but basically in other cultures, particularly in Japan, they often use English words to "look cool", virtually ignoring their meaning. Think all the people you've seen that have chinese symbol tattoos but don't speak Chinese.

_@_v - if the saying "you are what you eat" is true, that could be a french dude...

_@_v - at least one that eats more frogs than snails...

Um, the whole point of acronyms is that words like "the" don't count.

i.e. PETA = People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Notice that "for", "the", and "of" aren't actually part of the acronym.

"In this episode of 'Human Body', an unsuspecting human "consumer" pics up the evil 'Green Frog' from the Dollar Tree store...Stay tuned to see what happens next!"

Posted by: thehumanbodyshow at December 9, 2005 06:48 PM

Obviously not broken.

It's simple. He croaked!

"in acronyms like WTF and STFU, "The" is included"

That's because they were invented and used by morons.

Posted by: WTF at December 11, 2005 01:23 PM

lol, I remember seeing this on Letterman.

Posted by: Nick at December 17, 2005 09:30 PM

are you ppl still talking bout the frog or shortented swearwords???

Posted by: james at December 19, 2005 09:34 PM

Perhaps this is one of those toys you put in water and it changes form. Possibly a human?

Posted by: Ed at March 8, 2006 03:04 PM

along w/ the giant sperm thing, if you look closely, you will see that the "sperm"'s head is actually a human head with a limbless stick body. Darwin's Theory was true!!!!!! LOL!!!
