"Ribbitt! Ribbitt!"

In an almost superhuman display of extraordinary patience, auditory precision, and monk like concentration, 53-year-old Walter Barnes Burden of Boogertown interrupted his favorite TV program in order to track down and isolate a cricket in the foyer of his Helm Street home Saturday evening.

"At first it sounded like it was coming from everywhere, until I realized it was near the front door," Burden told the Boogertown Banner, adding that he was able to overcome the cricket's tactic of not chirping when someone gets close to it by standing perfectly still, listening "really hard," and waiting for the sound to start again."

"It took two solid hours and a half of dedicated searching, but it was all worthwhile when I realized it was just one of the voices in my head up to his old tricks."

"I call him, 'Wormy'."

"Listen! LISTEN!! Now he's going like a bullfrog! Ribbitt! Ribbitt!! Hee hee hee!"
