Peg leg frog

A frog called Brullie is believed to be the first in the world to be fitted with an artificial leg.

The giant bullfrog had his shattered lower leg bone replaced with an inch-long metal pole in a two hour operation in South Africa.

The lame amphibian went under the vet’s knife after being bitten by a dog, reports the Daily Telegraph.

And after only fifteen beers, too.

Authorities in Ohio said the vehicle used by a man charged with drunken driving was a motorized barstool.

Police in Newark, 30 miles east of Columbus, said when they responded to a report of a crash with injuries on March 4, they found a man who had wrecked what appeared to be a barstool sitting atop a deconstructed lawn mower.

Kile Wygle, 28, was hospitalized for minor injuries. Police said he was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he told an officer at the hospital that he had consumed 15 beers.
