What is What The??? Well in Australia we had a TV show compared by a gentleman called Rove McManus and on his show he had a section called What The?
It was a bit of a hodge podge but the general theme was the items that appeared made you do the quick double take and query What The????
With Cee discontinuing OddBall I thought I would start something based on Rove’s concept. So my What The??? will be anything I locate which makes me scratch my head in confusion – news stories, photos even strange adverts.
Feel free to join in if your interested.
So, this week’s What The??? revolves around the picture at the top of the blog, which we took near Boyup Brook in Western Australia. This lovely little campsite was beside a river and I will admit that when I saw this stuff floating on the surface I thought it was the result of chemicals – well close, but no.
Imagine my surprise when I realized it was Frog Sprog. Yep, as the informative notice announced this foaming mass is produced by the females, who beat their legs against the water to produce a foam nest. Then they lay their eggs in it, which are in turn fertilized by the males.
Lovely to see nature in action but it is the last picture that gets me – All that stuff is frog sprog. What The???
