In Germany the weather report – purportedly – is being issued by a frog sitting on a ladder. The weather will be as good – or bad – according to the rung of the ladder that frog is sitting on. On a scale of one to whatever the top rung representing really good to, well,… I’m sure you can figure it out for yourselves.
On the other slippery and cold hand, magnificent weather with oodles of sunshine is being called ‘Kaiserwetter’ – or ’emperor’s weather’. It seemed only natural to combine the two into ‘Emperor Frog’s Weather Report’. Someone has put in a request or order form to ensure their endeavour will be blessed with sunshine.
The frog shares a pun with the tadpoles in the jar of water that does not quite translate.
He could always say: ‘Toadally”
