WCVB - Boston ^ | May 17, 2014

Posted on 05/20/2014 12:55:40 AM PDT by Slings and Arrows

ASHLAND, Mass. —A call to police about a possible intruder has a hoppy ending.

Ashland police said in a Twitter post Friday night that they received a report of someone “banging on barrels and walking on the back deck.”

Police posted a mug shot of the suspect, which turned to be a large frog.

“After a short pursuit, one is in custody,” police said in a tweet.

I was trying to be ‘polite’.

HOWEVER, I did get somewhat ‘chastised’ and reminded it was a derogatory remark on FR Mail.

Person basically wanted to know the origin BUT ‘reminded’ me it wasn’t a nice thing to call someone.

Actually he's an alien frog that's here to conquer Earth.

Sgt. Frog

Keroro is Sergeant Frog – the leader of a platoon of warriors sent to conquer planet Earth. But when the amphibious invaders discovered how much humans enjoy dissecting their comrades, the troops were scattered, the mission was aborted, and Keroro was abandoned.

Now, this once proud soldier spends more time wielding a vacuum than he does the weapons of war. It’s a far cry from the glory of battle, but hey, at least he’s got his own room. And though the invasion may have slowed to a hop, Sergeant Frog still occasionally yearns to overcome his karaoke addiction and reassemble his troops. Watch out world, the frogs are taking over.

Kinda ‘gangsta’, which fits the current cop model.

Didn’t being inked up like a gang member used to be a disqualifier for being a cop? I guess that was back in the old days before police departments were allowed screen out applicants who score too high on the IQ test (no, I’m not making that up...police departments do that).

You are too kind. Looks like they are approaching the bottom of the barrel having to hire skinheads.

Maybe was “Circus Police”.

Very good. Thanks, I enjoyed reading the story at that link.

Last month, while we were camping in a state park in Pennsylvania, our nightly campfire time was enhanced by the sounds of barred owls. Every time I am in such a situation, surrounded by total darkness, I can just imagine the terror of our ancestors upon hearing sounds like these in the night.

I’m sure the frog surrendered without a fight.

Any pics of a frog holding a white flag?

Important facts left out of the story:

1. Frog had a dog.

2. Cop killed the frog’s dog.

I was gonna say, “Well I’ll be a frog’s dog!” when I saw the photo, but it’s risky to say that anymore.
