Frogs: "We want justice! And flies"

PARIS, FRANCE--A group of disgruntled, disabled and above all disorientated frogs are suing the population of France, past and present, over their ongoing culinary pursuit of frog's legs.

For centuries, French food-lovers have enjoyed the legs of frogs as a staple three-meal diet, alongside french bread, croissants, red wine and garlic. But now, the Disabled Frogs Revenge League are fighting back, demanding 14billion euros and a years supply of flies in compensation.

Speaking through an interpretor, the Chairfrog of DFRL told TheSpoof.com: "Too long have we frogs allowed dirty beret-wearing Frenchmen chop off our legs and leave us like that guy who played Superman but fell off a horse. We wish to hop again! Ribbit!"

Victory in the courtcase that's tipped to rival Michael Jacksons as THE courtcase of 2004 would mean that frog-leg-chopping would be banned in France, and those who have already endured such pain would be given little metal springs to hop on.

French President Jacques Chiraq is said to be "feeling a bit peckish".
