ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
“The retired school staffer says she and her husband are seeking legal advice to examine their options”
Well, they do have just about the most famous tort case in legal history as precedent.
I prefer my Pepsi without the high frog-toes corn syrup.
@16- Why? Millions upon millions of cans of pepsi. One frog. Might as well declare you’ll never cross the road because you read about someone getting run over.
Of course, if you happen to notice that diet pepsi tastes godawful anyhow, that’s a different matter.
Don’t forget to try new Pepsi Crunchy Frog!
Man, I remember that from Law A’Level…. Snail & Ginger Ale?
At work we had a 1.25lt bottle of Pepsi Max at had a fungus growing in it. We left it for a few days after it was first found and the fungus grew larger. Needless to say I very rarely have softdrink now.
Sad commentary on the boring revival of Tiki Bars. Taking a big gulp of diet Pepsi? No no no no no.

It really really really f*cking sucks that I was chugging on a Pepsi when I decided to surf through Boingboing.
Well-placed Monty Python reference :)
Oh yeah, and I found a finger in my Chili.
Here we go again.
Florida tag applies.
But was it the finest baby frog, dew-picked and flown from Iraq, then lightly killed? (From memory, I swear.)
Perhaps the community can help me: how many w’s in Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!?
This is why I only drink Coke from a plastic bottle.
‘I off one fat frog, and you throw a hissy fit.’
And you thought it was surprising when they fell from the sky!
Wow. Pepsi has nutrients!
Lightly killed and covered in glucose,,,
This reminds me of the time I found a lock of hair in my Snapple. Which thankfully I didn’t drink since I gave it to my friend not knowing the hair was in there.
Pepsi for frogs!
Well, it’s a little more original than a hypodermic, I’ll give them that.
Ummmmm. I think it is very unlikely that I will drink a pepsi again.
Fungus, sure. A softdrink would provide all the nutrients for a fungus to grow. Frogs, mice, and all the other fauna that scammers claim to find … um, no. I suppose one is meant to believe that they got in while they were much smaller and thrived and grew in the soda?
I’m calling shenanigans on the frog thing.
The way they fill them, it’s just about impossible.
Thanks for the Monty Python references, I needed a good laugh to start my morning.
Also, thanks #18, that’s my favorite line.
sorry to demystify. it’s not a frog, but it is biological matter, in the form of cellulose. Corn syrup is derived from corn. concentrated, it forms a solid substance, that resembles…well… loose poop. In my short charge as “ice cream dispensory worker” at baskin robbins, it was my job one day to figure out why the coke machine wasn’t giving any more soda. I discovered that there was a massive solid in the middle of the hose connecting the soda water to the flavoring element (that part they dump the syrup in) of the soda. The hose was completely clogged with the solid brown matter. When we stomped on the hose, the chunk shot out about 50 feet. it was perfectly cylindrical in shape. so this isn’t new. they probably found something similar. It’s a hose backfire is all it is.
That could be a good cure for alcholism.
Clearly you haven’t googled “pruno.”
Don’t you even take the frogs out?
If we took the frogs out it wouldn’t be Pepsi, would it?
Secret recipe and the reason for the amphibian extinction event revealed in one fell swoop.
Soylent Green is PEOPLE!
And Pepsi is FROGS!
And Pork Rinds are, oh, just what it says on the ingredients. Ew.
…still gonna think about it next time i have a soda, though.
Frog Zero Takes More Like Real Frogs.
FTA: “But the DeNegris say they’re hopping mad over Pepsi’s handling of the matter.”
Really? Direct quote?
If they took the bones out it wouldne be crunchy, now would it?
Wrong, wrong, wrong, BB.
The facts from the story:
The FDA confirms a Florida couple gave them some frog or toad residue.
The Florida couple claims it was in a soda can.
The Florida couple wants money from Pepsi.

That noise you heard wasn’t a burp, it was a croak.
Well, was it a frog or a toad?
there was some guy in albany, NY who “found” a snake head in his dinner at TGIFridays last year… funny how it wasnt cooked and was also lacking organs…some herpetophobe is eviscerating a lot of animals and placing them in our food supply!
has no one learned anything from “strange brew”?
it has to be a MOUSE in your BEER!
Why is he complaining? The dead frog tastes better and has more nutritional value than the pepsi!
this video is from the early 90s.
the similarities are chilling.
if only we’d paid closer attention…
