From The Tormented Frog:
There was once a lowly frog, Walsey by name, who was unlucky enough to live near a great castle. Walsey was ugly, even by froggish standards.
Walsey was happily squishing muck between his toes when he was jerked out of the soft goo by a gardenia-smelling hankie. He was lifted high into the air, where he came face to face with his assailant.
A pair of hideous blue eyes stared into his for a moment before they closed and he was drawn helplessly toward a pink-painted scrunched up mouth. A loud “smack” was quickly followed by a disgusted “blech!” The awful blue eyes opened again and looked expectantly at Walsey.
He was turned this way and that, and was quite dizzy when he was thrown back into the mud (gardenia hankie and all). Walsey wiped the mud from his good eye and warily watched the billowy yellow beast stomp down the road.
