Random Memory

Chatting with an old childhood friend the other day, I told him about a random memory I had. A few of us were playing Kick the Can in his backyard (taking a break from Baby in the Air, I guess) and another kid from across the street purposely stepped on a frog and squashed it. I watched uncomfortably as my friend, who was a couple years older than me, told me, “Those are its guts.”

Gross.

If you find that person who squished the frog, please knock their lights out for me. I personally have a pet frog which i adore, and i definitely cant imagine squishing him or any other animal.

My cousins used to play "toadball" which was baseball using live toads.

I think that's worse

I had a friend from India who used to talk about how his village was constantly overrun by hundreds of rabbits.

He and his friends would catch a few (not too hard), take them up to the roof, and drop them to see if they would bounce.

Ah, we are truly great guardians of the environment.

My girlfriend attacked a US Marine who had poured salt on a slug. She warned him not to do it and he did it anyway. She busted his lip. He got what he deserved.

We used to take my neighbor's cat and drop her off the deck( it was about 10 feet high) to see if she would land on her feet.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
