Frogs Here, Frogs There, Frogs Were Jumping Everywhere
After hearing about how the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is like the plague of blood, you'd figure that there would be a continuation of the plagues in Egypt.
THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) — Greek officials say a horde of frogs has forced the closure of a key northern highway for two hours.
Thessaloniki traffic police chief Giorgos Thanoglou says "millions" of the amphibians covered the tarmac Wednesday near the town of Langadas, some 12 miles east of Thessaloniki.
"There was a carpet of frogs," he said.
Authorities closed the highway after three car drivers skidded off the road trying to dodge the frogs. No human injuries were reported.
Thanoglou said the amphibians probably left a nearby lake to look for food.
VIN even calls it by its biblical name: 'Tzfardei'a'
