“Some people wanna fill the world
 with silly love songs,” McCartney famously sang, asking, “what's wrong with that?"

As it turns out, plenty, if you’re a tiny Central American frog. A little reptile which is analogous to some underhanded local Proviso political types.

More on that in a moment. First you just gotta hear about this star-crossed lovesick frog.

Before McCartney sang about silly love songs, Gene Pitney sang, “It hurts to be in love.”

“Don’t I know it,” the tungara frog might reply.

The Jan. 24 Christian Science Monitor printed a Reuters article relating the problems the male tungara frog faces in finding a mate.

The loud, low mating call made by male tungara frogs in search of a love connection has a deadly unintended effect - attracting frog-eating bats, Reuters reports.

While the male tungara frog's love song entices the female of the species, it also creates small ripples on the ponds and puddles where the frogs gather. That helps hungry bats using a form of sonar zero in on them to snag a juicy meal, scientists reported on Thursday.

The brownish frogs, measuring less than an inch long, begin their mating calls when the sun sets in the rainforest. As the males make their calls, their vocal sacs inflate and deflate like a pulsing balloon, creating ripples on the water's surface.

The researchers conducted experiments to show that the frog's natural predator, the fringe-lipped bat, was attracted by the mating calls but also apparently employed echolocation - the use of sound waves and echoes to determine something's location - on the ripples to find the unfortunate amphibian.

The propagating ripples served as a watery bull's-eye.

"When a bat flies by, the frog's first line of defense is to stop calling," Rachel Page, a scientist with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, said in a statement. "But the water ripples continue for another few seconds, effectively leaving a detection footprint for the approaching bat."

Instead of taking Ms. Tungara frog out to dinner, our frog quickly becomes dinner. 

Now that's unrequited love. To paraphrase another Pitney song, “It isn’t very pretty what a pond without pity can do.”

Speaking of Central American frogs (and a scum covered pond of the political type) the poor little tungara frog’s plight reminds me of the old Forest Park Truth Squad website sending out it’s little reptilian “blah-blah-blah” utterances.

Unfortunately for the Proviso Pravda, just like the little tungara frog, it was seeking one thing but got something altogether different.

The response self-styled internet guru Tom Mannix got was to ultimately see his involvement in the website disclosed despite his initially lying about it. Meanwhile, another publicity shy political operative who doesn’t have the guts to step out from behind the curtain and state things publicly lost a valued bully pulpit with which to smear people.

Same thing with Emanuel “Chris!!!” Welch, the lying and libelous Proviso insider who was forced to publicly admit he was making stuff up to attack opponents. Said opponents being anyone who’s opinion he didn’t like, or who didn’t genuflect before his political ego.  

Just like that little lovesick tungara frog, Mannix and Welch were, so to speak, looking for love in all the wrong places.

Sitting amidst the Proviso pond scum, Welch filled his own vocal sacs and bleated out once too often, “The Proviso Insider has learned that…”

Talk about creating “a watery bull's-eye.” A couple of decidedly unamused lawyers swooped down on Welch like voracious silk tie wearing fringe-lipped bats with brief cases.

Welch shut up, but like the tungara frog, not soon enough.

"…. ?!... awwcrap!!!" Welch could be heard exclaiming. "Help me, D209 board. I'm your president. You're here because of me! No one else!"

"You're on your own, frog" the state financial oversight board said, overruling Welch's attempt to have tax payers get bitten for what was clearly his own stupidity.

“Ziiiiip!Snap.Crunch-crunch!” the angry bats replied in court. “Urp…”

So it just goes to show, whether you’re a tiny little pond scum dwelling frog, or simply a human who chooses to behave like one, you need to watch what you say.

Because you never know who, or what, is listening in.
