Found Object - Frog bill in the hopper
Much time and legislative effort has gone into a bill this session that would elevate the green tree frog to Georgia's official state amphibian. We thought it would be a shame if the little critter ended up another dusty factoid in the mostly obscure pantheon of Georgia's state symbols, which include the knobbled whelk (state seashell); gopher tortoise (state reptile); and right whale (state mammal). Who knew? Instead, the state should get proactive and adopt a cartoon character that will truly endear the green tree frog to Georgia's children - in much the same way that the official state bird, the brown thrasher, has been embraced by fans of missing teeth and high-sticking injuries. CL suggests that lawmakers look no further than Kandoo, the adorable new Pamper's butt-wiping frog, who appeared in newspaper ads last weekend. Think of it this way: By adopting Kandoo, the state can honor the indigenous green tree frog and promote anal hygiene at the same time. The frog could even have his own motto: "He's cute, he's green and he keeps his ass clean!"
