Frog Day Afternoon

Marcus L. Rowland

Lois grabbed a wriggling frog, dunked it in chili sauce, and bit its head off.

Clark stared, and said "Lois, are you--?"

Lois took another bite and said "An evil clone? Nope. They're chocolate frogs, Calvin sent them from Salem."

"I know... I was wondering about the chili sauce. Are you--?"

"Pregnant? Nope."

"Okay, I give up. Why chili?"

"Seriously? Superman has nothing else to worry about?"

"Things are quiet. Why chili?"

She dipped another frog and gave it to Clark: "Try it!"

"It's... Ewww!" He spat it out.

"Okay, I owe Martha ten dollars. You really are that gullible..."


For the perplexed... in the Lois and Clark TV series Lex Luthor replaced Lois Lane with a defective clone who had to eat a special type of frog to survive. For some reason I suddenly remembered the Potterverse chocolate frogs, and that plain chocolate is quite nice with a little chilli, but milk is just vile...

I've previously used this title for an otherwise unconnected short story, one of my few professional fiction sales: Frog Day Afternoon.

Comments please before I post to archives.
