    The Boiled Frog

    The Boiling Frog is a well known story describing a frog slowly being boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability of people to react to significant changes that occur gradually.

    Now is the time for the frogs to arise from their slumber, take a good hard look at what’s being done to them by cultural polluters like MTV, and jump out of the pot, before they and their children get burned. MTV has crossed a line from depicting young adults wallowing in the gutter, to CHILD pornography! That’s a pretty big line to cross. Hello! MTV’s business model has always largely revolved around corrupting high schoolers and middle schoolers, but now that’s been taken to a whole new level with “Skins.” I ask all people of good will to shun this wretched organization.
