After the release of Disney's latest animated movie, The Princess and the Frog, the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians issued a warning: PLEASE DO NOT KISS FROGS. It would almost be funny

Very funny... I was just about to go and give my frog a big smooch!!!... thank goodness I read this article first!!! LOL!!! So true though about the abandoned dogs left in the shelters after many Disney movies. It's the parents that go out and get the pet... if they don't have the intentions of keeping them, why get them in the first place?... I just don't get it... isn't it the adult that makes the final decision? Just goes to show you how many irresponsible parents are out there and that they need to be educated. Getting a pet because of a movie and than abandoning it at the shelter is not setting a very good example for your children/child not to mention the poor fate of the animal. Thanks for the post Simone!!! Peace.

Forget about exposing the human to (possibly) salmonella--think of the lipstick and other cosmetics so many humans wear on their lips, the lotions on their hands, etc. all of which can't be good for the frog being kissed. Too bad that there are so very many idiots in the world that veterinarians actually have to issue warnings about things which should be obvious.

This is yet another symptom of our sad society who cannot distinguish between reality and fantasy! Reading the very gory and graphic Grimms Fairy Tales in childhood never affected me or any other children as far as I know. I think children today are too heavily bombarded with visual images from films and TV rather than firing their imagination from words.
