    Airline Passenger Finds Frog in Her Salad

    Hmmmm! Can one have that if they are on a low carb diet?? Just wondering!


    WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Australian carrier Qantas said Tuesday it has changed its lettuce supplier after a passenger on a flight from Melbourne to Wellington found a live frog in her greens.

    The one-inch Australian whistling tree frog didn't get a chance to hop away. The woman plunked the lid back on her meal preventing any escape.

    The Qantas plane's crew notified the Quarantine Service while the plane was still in the air and officials were waiting when it landed at Wellington Airport.

    "I'm afraid the frog was euthanized" in a freezer, service general manager Fergus Small told National Radio.
    Freethought is a philosophy not a policy-
    "The opinions expressed herein are not necessarily those of my employer, not necessarily mine, and probably not necessary."

    Better a frog in the salad than in the engine!
