Missing in France
Headline in today's Ironic Times ( <BR> <BR>"Kermit the Frog Reported Missing in France" <BR> <BR>"It was 'just his first visit there,' says a distraught spokesman." <BR> <BR>.... and you thought there was no crime in France. Shows how sensitive some people can be to racial epithets......

I just hope he is found with all his limbs intact!

There are 10,000 polliwogs in Marseille who are threatening a class-action paternity suit.

The paparazzi have been chasing after a black-veiled female pig seen at the airport bound for Corsica.

Mickle, <BR>He is found - I saw Kermit in the window of the restaurant Freddy the Grenouille, rive gauche. <BR>It is a small place and hard to find. The service is great. The ambiance is bawdy. The tete-de-veau is delicious. The house specialty is a desert consisting of a pillar of ice cream bracketed by a pair of half peaches round side up, served to ladies on a plate with no spoon; it is a blushing and roaring affair when one of these is served. The walls are covered with currency from around the world. It's an old hang-out for medical students. <BR>John Bermont <BR> <BR>

Thanks, John. But with all this recent press, will Freddy just be *full* of American tourists? Or is it an authentic Parisian experience?
