"His name's Hopper, he's a jumper."

"I think he's dead."

"No he's not, he's just sleeping."

"Nuh-uh. He's dead."

"No he's not! He's sleeping!"

"Whatcha doin', guys?"

"Mister, will you please help me wake up my frog?"

I better call the owner right away and tell him/her that Hopkin's legs were finger-licking good.

However, exit polls are also showing that the frog is 59% female and 41% male. So take the frog with a grain of salt.

And thus began the great MetaFilter Goat versus Frog war.

Choose sides, motherfuckers!

Hopkin is perhaps the perfect frog name. I found this other mention of Hopkin, but it only adds to the mystery.

Love the mugshot drawings of Hopkin. I also like the vaguely threatening, determined I'll find my frog at the end. Good luck, kid.

If Al Gore had been president for the last 4 years, stem-cell research would have saved that frog!

"Who took my frog?" Isn't that what we're all asking ourselves, deep down inside?

The first thing that leapt into my mind:

One day, a twelve year old boy walks into a brothel. The madam asks "Can I help you son?" to which he replies, "Yes I'd like a girl for the night."

She says "I'm afraid you are too young for one of my girls." So he gets out his wallet and gives her $200. To which she says "She'll be waiting for you up stairs."

The boy says "But she's got to have herpes."

The Madam replies "But all my girls are clean!" So out comes the wallet again and he gives her another $200. The Madam says "OK, she'll be ready for you in about 10 mins".

So he goes up the stairs dragging the dead frog. About 1/2 an hour later he comes down the stairs,with a big grin on his face. By now the Madam was just a touch curious so she asked him "Why did you come in here asking for a girl with herpes?".

"Well, it's like this", he says, "When I get home tonight I'll screw the baby-sitter and then she'll get herpes. Then when my parents get home dad will drive her home and on the way they'll stop and have sex, and he'll get herpes. Later when dad gets home mum and dad will make love and then she'll get herpes. And at about 9.30 tomorrow morning, when dad has gone to work, the milkman will come round, screw my mother and then he'll get herpes...

...AND HE'S THE BASTARD WHO KILLED MY FROG.

Herb: I can't call in a podiatrist to see a frog. It'll make me look stupid.
Les: Herb, podiatrists take four years of medical training.
Bailey: Oh, call him, Herb, the frog is dying. Just pick up the phone and say, "Hi, my pink frog is dying and I would like you to come up here and take a look at his feet." I am sorry, I could not resist it!

mwhybark posted an update: Hopkins Explained : So, then, that’s the resolution. Hopkin was lost by an autistic adolescent; this explains something of the sense of determination that comes through the initial flier. His family requests that no Hopkins be sent and that people seeing the Hopkin flier should not call with frog news, or, as I did, to find out what the story behind the flier is.
