Swallow a Frog First Thing…

Big Frog

Everybody’s got advice about how to make your day go better, especially if they know you’re about to have a bad one (or several in a row). The old saw “Swallow a frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse can happen to you all day” is even used as management advice, or to boost productivity. I don’t think this counsel was ever meant to be taken literally. It’s more of a guideline thing; besides, what about the frogs? I’m not sure this would make their day any better.

A bar in Peru, however, has decided it’s pretty good guidance, and good business too…

Location: Lima, Peru. High up in the Andes, this bar’s patrons have been chugging down churned frog juice for fifteen years. The process starts with live frogs, which are, uh, processed right in front of the victim thirsty customers. All sorts of things are then added, depending on what the customer really wants to taste. (At least, that’s what I’m hoping.) Fruits, vegetables, dairy, eggs and more. Up to twenty items in one creamy shake. After all, I bet it takes a lot of things to hide that flavor.

The bar owner says fresh frog shakes are good for you, improving everything from skin tone and bone strength to your sex life. At this point, I’ll take her word for it. If I’m ever in Lima, I’m sure I’ll stop by just to watch the people being carted away in straightjackets out of curiosity, I’m sure. (I wonder if they can make one with pisco in it? Hhmmm…)

As far as I know, this is the only such bar in the world. See, there’s always something to be thankful for, including not having to swallow a frog first thing…
