Hi all,
I like to eat frogs' legs but some articles say they are unhealthy. Is it true?

@Loh Jane,
It's definitely true for the frogs.

@Loh Jane,
frog legs are delicious and loaded with all sort of amphibious goodness.

Unluke the English who, at this very time of year, are partaking of freshly killed grouse and woodcock that are cooked and eaten offal and all.

What articles? The New England Journal of Medicine? Or People Magazine? When I see people ask these types of questions I wonder what their sources exactly are. People who ask these vague unsubstantiated questions tend to rely on sources that aren't known for their scientific reputation. According to one source online, the only problem with frogs legs is their cholesterol count.

I guess overall it all depends on how you cook them.

Doc Hopper: [pointing to a billboard showing a bucket of "Doc Hopper's French Fried Frog Legs"] Isn't that splendid? Just splendid! Just take a look at it.
Kermit: All I can see are millions of frogs with tiny crutches.

@Qasim555,
There was a restaurant in Tulsa that served em up in a garlicky butter gravy. The meal was accompanied by fresh butter beans and a salad. Kinda comfort food (except for the frogs)
But hey, e don't get all weepy about fish or chicken do we?

@farmerman,
But is the method of frog killing humane, me wonders?

Doubt it.

I also avoid lobster and crab, if I suspect they weren't quickly dispatched.

@Lordyaswas,
usually frogs are "gigged" which is a long forklike dingus on a spear. The frogs are killed on the boat and iced. they would also shoot en with 22's.

"HUMANE" can have many views based on the culture.

@farmerman,
If the restaurant convinced me that they didn't suffer unnecessarily, I'd be more than willing to eat a football team's worth, but why the frig bother when they taste like chicken and hardly contain a gobfull.

Why not just have a chicken leg?

Cobblers.
If you wanted to eat a chicken or a rabbit, would you even consider strangling it just enough so it took half an hour to kill?

No, course you wouldn't. You'd bop it or chop it as quickly as possible.

It's easy to dispatch a lobster and do it humanely. A butcher's knife simply through the lobster noggin and you have an instant dead lobster.

@Lordyaswas,
Its merely a traditional means of dispatching the beast.
Chickens and rabbits were (And the best still are) bled and drawn and hung for a day or more to create enzymatic reactions (controlled ROT)
Seafoods like crabs , lobsters and shellfish cannot be killed and held for later.They must be killed by the cooking or immediately before cooking. Its hard stabbing a lobster in the brain, AND don't even talk to me about a clam.

Imagine stabbing ten thousand crayfish in the basal cranial area. Itd take one a week to cook up a "bug boil"

Screw the fancy knife work, it ain't necessary . . .

A lobster dies in the boiling pot
Oh pity the bluefish, too
But they're quickly gone and they suffer not
The way I cry for you my dear, Mary Anne

@Setanta,
kinda sappy way to compare the loss of a lover v a boiled shore dinner, no?

New Christy Minstrels and The Brothers four, and Kingston Trio were just a tad before me but I inherited all my cousins "HOOTENANNY" records with all those silly verses.

"Michael Roll the Polish Whore", was a song that I could not interpret very well. Why would one yell ALLELUJAH after commiting a mortal sin with an ethnic?

Poles are ethnic? Who knew? I just thought they were long and straight, and often used in boating.
