Over 50 girls in the US got salmonella poisoning after kissing frogs

After watching Princess and the Frog...

In January 2010, it emerged that over 50 children in the US - mostly girls under the age of 10- had been taken to hospital with salmonella poisoning after copying Tiana and kissing frogs. Both the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians issued statements warning parents of the dangers of allowing their children to handle and kiss frogs.

Ouch! This is funny, but I can't help but think about those poor kids! This is bad parenting! Parents, if you take your kids to see a movie (and they're under 10), you've got to tell your kids that it's only make believe and make sure they understand that. And, on top of that, you need to make sure that if the point of the movie is a romance movie about a woman kissing a frog to become a princess... then you also need to tell your children that you don't actually kiss frogs!

Come on parents!



  1. wow
    I'm doing a project on Salmonella poisoning and happened to come across this and intend to use it as a bit of comic relief!
