The E-mail joke concerning the talking frog mentioned in your last commentary had made the rounds in similar form for at least 2 years. The geeky/nerdie types (among which I am numbered) find it endearing – a reinforcement of the odd ball loner techie image we claim as our birthright (even if we don’t match the mold).

One of the people to whom I forwarded the joke some years ago found it less than humorous as she thought the joke was a drawn from life image of her son.

Just thought I’d pass that along.

Her son carried a frog around with him, and talked to it?
