Considering yesterday’s post went over so well (sarcasm) I am more than happy to remove “the toilet” from my list of museums to cover on this blog. On this last day of August let’s forget about sanitation devices for a moment and turn to the oh-so important topic of frogs. In Estavayer-le-Lac, Switzerland there is a 19th century collection of stuffed frogs. Back in the 1850s an eccentric Napoleonic guard officer began collecting frogs on his walks around the countryside. I’m assuming he was a bit of a loner with some time on his hands because he would return home from a long day’s walk, gut the frogs, fill the sacks of skin with sand, and pose them in quirky dioramas. And somehow this shit ended up in a museum, an actual Frog Museum (Le Musee Des Grenouilles or Das Fröschenmuseum for the Swiss who speak both French and German). And like any weird collection, the museum’s holdings also include 200 Swiss Rail lamps as well as a collection of Swiss armaments and battle regalia. So when frogs croak in Switzerland is it in German or French? I NEED TO KNOW!
