I remember the Great Frog Crisis of 2009 like it was only an hour ago. Because it was only like an hour ago. Antimere and I were standing outside of FUNimation HQ. We were discussing obscure French poetry, as we so often do, when we heard Chris Sabat call out, "Dudes. Check out this frog." And we did.
Antimere and I checked out that frog. But the frog wasnt just hanging out like most frogs do. He was stuck in some sort of tiny manhole cover made of plastic! A familiar pain throbbed in my heart as a dark memory surfaced my childhood ballet teacher had perished in a very similar fashion! All those years ago, I vowed to never dance again. And an hour ago, I vowed to totally get that frog out of that tiny manhole cover made of plastic.
As bystanders took pictures and video with their phones, and Antimere recited an appropriate poem by Luc Dubois, I struggled to liberate the frog. Rojas appeared on the scene, and while his great-looking hair threatened to distract me from my efforts, his words gave me the final burst of strength I needed to greet destiny. He said, "Huh. Thats weird. Sgt. Frog is being released today." Then he got in his car and went to lunch. Oh, and after a couple of minutes, I kinda just pulled the frog out of the tiny manhole cover. But, listen to me here because I'm serious I dont want to be treated like a hero. No way. I want to be treated like a superhero.
