Time to show off your creativity.

I am enamored of the exploding German toads story below.

Here's where I need your help. Imagine that the Fox network got the rights to tell the story in a dramatic 2-hour movie. What would the title be and who would star?

My idea:

Ribbit! Terror in Hamburg! (or) When Toads Attack!

Either way it has to star Hasselhoff.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the ... [Read More]

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listen... [Read More]

Tale of the Tumescent Toads

And it'd have to star Tim Robbins. And probably Tom Hanks.

This is a very serious subject, and quite the potential tearjerker.

Rob Reiner should direct.

I fail to see the humor in this. Having been a victim of a company who dumped chemical pollutants into the village sewer and then contaminating my drinking water, this doesn't strike me as particularly funny. Shooting a toad with a bb gun is one thing...

"The pond's water quality is no better or worse than other bodies of water in Hamburg." -from the story itself.

Who said anything about chemical pollutants?

I think the toads are the first wave of an alien invasion of some sort.

Amphibian Nation

starring Joan Rivers (b/c it would take the least amount of work to make her look like one)

It would also employ a bit of sci-fi embellishment, introducing the toads as aliens from another planet who weren't quite prepared to deal with Earth's atmospheric pressure.

I'm no biologist but it sure sounds like pollution to me. It reminds me of the story a while back where frogs in Minnesota were growing extra arms. I never heard a follow up on that. As they said in the sixties, "Pollution, it ain't no solution."

Chicken Little

Ever drive through a rainstorm of frogs? It's pretty bizarre.

Mr. Toad went a courtin'
and he did 'splode
mm-hmmm, mm-hmmm...

"Spontoadious Combustion" - the harrowing story of a small town that is inundated by exploding toads and the exterminator brought to kick frog and take names...

Starring John Goodman, Tobey Maguire and Star Jones. Also starring Wilford Brimley as "Papaw"

Posted by: Barry at April 28, 2005 03:05 PM

Hmm..would be called " Legs" and be the sinister story of a deranged pub owner who decides to put his joint on the map with the newest catch of the day...frog legs...only to keep up with the supply and demand, alternate methods of "harvesting" have to be found...thus the explosion aspect....(I picture maniacal laughter as the guy slips through the pond watching gleefully as the toads swell and pop so that he my easily pluck the still kicking legs from their slimy little bodies)....ok..so,starring in this little comedy.....Christopher Walken as the pub owner...Bea Arthur as his surly chef.

Posted by: jo at April 28, 2005 04:01 PM

If jo's scenario were made as a modern opera you could title it "Sweeney Toad".

Christopher Walken... sweet.

Posted by: Pete at April 28, 2005 04:20 PM

Not just Christopher Walken... Christopher Walken as the pub owner.
