|12 And everything else in France.
13 Nor were these the only great accomplishments of the Frogs.
CHAPTER 231 For example, there was wine, awhich the Frogs invented,
2 bAnd drank continuously,
3 cMorning, noon, and night,
4 Out of bottles with beautiful dlabels,
5 eThat had been stored in cellars for generations,
6 Just waiting for the one perfect occasion,
7 fWhen the precisely perfect vintage could be used to start another precisely perfect gquarrel about absolutely nothing.
8 And wine was only one of many such gifts the Frogs had given the world.
CHAPTER 241 After all, where would the world be if the hFrogs had not invented food,
2 Which consisted of beautiful, perfectly prepared combinations of rotten meat and rotten poultry,
3 And rotten vegetables,
4 And rotten fruit,
5 And rotten dairy products,
6 Topped off by marvelous little sauces that disguised the taste so well you'd hardly know you were eating something even pigs would have the good sense to avoid.
7 This food, which the Frogs called high cuisine, was always served in beautiful restaurants,
8 Where the waiters made every meal a delight,
9 By sneering and raising their eyebrows and disappearing for hours at a time,
||10 iAnd then cursing the meagerness of the tip.
CHAPTER 251 And speaking of food, there were also some Frog scientists who loved Frog food so much they thought it was a shame that so many people died from eating such high cuisine,
2 jWhich is why another great Louis decided to discover that the real problem was not with Frog cuisine at all,
3 But with tiny little animals called kmicroorganisms,
4 Which nobody could see,
5 Except lLouis Pasteur,
6 Who figured out how to kill them with something called mPasteurization,
7 Which worked just great,
8 Because after he used it,
9 nNobody could see any microorganisms anymore.
10 This brilliant achievement paved the way for lots more Frog oscience over the years,
11 Including all kinds of pmiraculous breakthroughs that would just take your breath away,
12 qIf anybody but a Frog could see them.
CHAPTER 261 Another great Frog gift to the world,
2 Though not as great as food and wine and microorganisms, of course,
3 Was rFrench literature,
4 sWhich was great because it was the Frogs who had invented philosophy and poetry and tragedy and comedy.
5 There was a Frog philosopher named tLa Rochefoucauld, who knew so much about life that he wrote it all down in a little book,
