A Note To The Meme Whores

I stumbled upon this post explaining the situation with the whole lost frog meme that will not die. The scoop:

The person who drew the flier is a sixteen-year-old boy who suffers from autism. His father was unaware that his son may have made more than one batch of fliers (it appears that new fliers were hung in May of 2004). He did know about the loss of the frog and I believe that he knew about the first batch of fliers.

He also did not want me to give the frog to his son. He's forgotten it, he told me. Bringing it up again will probably only bring up a bunch of bad memories.

He was quite unaware of the interest in the frog and the flier on the internet. He reiterated that he did not think it would be a good idea to show the sites to his son.

Please stop calling them. I wish more people would link to this or mention it to try to prevent that family any more "heh heh" grief from the masses of bored click and droolers. Maybe it would be worthwhile to start up a little fund to pass along some money to the family to have their number (assuming that the one on the flier is even still valid) changed or whatever? I don't know but revelations like this make me consider allegedly funny things a lot more closely.
