Ribbit


Once upon a time, according to folk lore, an attractive female could kiss a frog and he would turn into a handsome prince. Not anymore.

A study was done at the University of California, Berkley, in March of this year, and it was discovered that frogs starting life as male tadpoles were changed into females by an estrogen-like pollutant similar to estrogen, called astrazine. Now, there's a twist to the an old fairy tale! No more handsome prince. Instead we're getting amphibious princesses.

Astrazine is one of many chemicals used in pest control. I'm talking about insect pests, not man pests, for those of you who are wondering. You've got to admit, it's kinda scary. Before you know it, the whole world will be comprised of (e-gads) nothing but girls.

Be careful all you guys out there. With all the pesticides used today, you never know when a gender change may occur. One day you'll be walking down the street with your XY chromosomes intact, the next day...POOF you're a girl!
