Two Frogs

I love, love, love this! It's short and sweet and worth the read...

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.


The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Great story, but do tell me - what are grits?

Great story. Btw, I am originally from the north and I would never put sugar in my grits. Butter and salt. Period.

Grits are kind of like Cream of Wheat cereal. People who live in the southern states (South Carolina, Louisianna, Georgia, etc) eat them usually with just butter and salt. Personally, if I had to eat warm cereal, I'd chose Cream of Wheat (with sugar) or Oatmeal. Just sayin'.

We don't have grits in the UK, our idea of warm cereal is porridge, but we have a controversy between the Scots (who eat it with salt) & the English (who eat it with sugar)
They're both wrong, of course - the answer is raisins.

That's funny! By the way, you're not missing anything by not having Grits. Yuck.
