Hoppy Christmas

A US men’s store says it has the ideal Christmas gift, a frog dissection kit.

Customers at Manhattan’s Jack Spade store were hopping mad to see the kit being sold alongside $775 leather cases and $145 calfskin passport holders. The $40 kit included a vacuum-sealed frog, magnifying glass, forceps, and scissors, probing sticks, a ruler and an instruction booklet.

Jack Spade’s spokesman Mordechai Rubinstein said: “The intent was to celebrate science and biology, present something educational for children and adults. “Jack Spade doesn’t support the unethical treatment of animals.” The store has now removed the product from its shelves.
