I don't want to leap to conclusions, but isn't it new drugs that lead to frogs in milk and not the other way around?

I'm kind of curious what other animals they tossed into milk in an attempt to keep it going sour.

Day 142. Put a small hedgehog in the milk bucket. Milk still turned sour, and the hedgehog is furious.
Day 143. Put a goldfish in the milk bucket. Pyotr accidentally drank it.
Day 144. Put a kitten in the milk bucket. Next day there was no milk, but a very fat cat.
Day 145. Put a frog in the milk bucket. Wow, man the colors! Couldn't tell if milk was sour -- it made loud musical notes whenever I looked at it. I must search for more frogs.

When exactly did we discover that all peptides are anti-microbial?

Surprising study, since the French are usually sour by attitude. So I would think putting one in your milk would be worse.

I think Louis Pasteur has something to say on the topic, and the frog part was definitely neglected.

What kept the frog from swimming around in attempt to get out and thusly turning the milk into butter?

BTW, Subby, just because it works doesn't mean it's not crazy.

You can use a baby as a baseball helmet, for example. It will protect your cranium a bit in the event of a bean ball. You'll still go down in history as a looney toon.

Nicely done. My first thought was that it was a Terry Pratchette quote.

And for those who slept/texted/played video games in biology class, a "peptide" is just any short chain of amino acids (i.e. any small, short piece of protein, "antibiotic" or not.)

/also, "i.e." is an abbreviation of a Latin phrase that means "in other words"
