The process of catching frogs for nourishment. The amphibious frog is a good source of protein and can be prepared in a number of ways. Usually only the legs are used in meals, but the whole frog can be used, as in frog soup. Here's how you catch your dinner:

  1. Find a small pitchfork or frog gig and attach it to a broomstick
  2. Get a semi-powerful flashlight, this is what you will use to blind the frogs.
  3. Go to a nearby pond or lake where you can hear lots of croaking.
  4. Walk around the edge quietly, shining the flashlight on the edge of the water.
  5. Once you spot a large enough frog, thrust the gig into the frog as fast as possible.
  6. If you are successful, you will have a wiggling frog on your gig.
  7. Continue hunting for frogs until you have a suitable amount for a meal.

Don't catch more than you're going to eat! Because of this gruesome process, you probably won't be able to stomach more than two or three. If you're a beginner, try frying up one frog and see what you think first.

Frog Giggin' is the art of catchin' Bull Frogs, for the purpose of eating them. Frog legs make for a very tasty southern meal.

Also known as Frog Stickin'.

Here is a little Urban Legend about a mishap that happened right after an Arkansas frog giggin’ trip.

(1996) Two local men were seriously injured when their pickup truck left the road and struck a tree near Cotton Patch on state Highway 38 early Monday morning. Woodruff County Deputy Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight Monday.

Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc, and Billy Ray Wallis, 38, of Little Rock, are listed in serious condition at Baptist Medical Center. The accident occurred as the two men were returning to Des Arc after a frog-giggin' trip.

On an overcast Sunday night, Poole's pickup truck's headlights malfunctioned. The two men concluded that the headlight fuse on the older model truck had burned out. A replacement fuse was not available, but Wallis noticed that the .22 caliber bullet from his pistol fit perfectly into the fuse box next to the steering wheel column. Upon inserting the bullet, the headlights again began to operate properly and the two men proceeded on eastbound toward the White River Bridge.

After traveling approximately 20 miles, just before crossing the river, the bullet apparently overheated, discharged and struck Poole in the right testicle. The vehicle swerved sharply to the right, exiting the pavement and striking a tree. Poole suffered only minor cuts and abrasions from the accident but will require surgery to repair the other wound. Wallis sustained a broken clavicle and was treated and released.

"Thank God we weren't on that bridge when Thurston (shot his intimate parts off) or we might have been dead," stated Wallis. "I've been a trooper for 10 years in this part of the world, but this is a first for me. I can't believe that those two would admit how the accident happened," said Snyder.

Upon being notified of the wreck, Lavinia, Poole's wife, asked how many frogs the boys had caught.
