S e c r e t s:
Now it’s every Englishman’s duty to talk about the “Frogs”, oops we mean the French, in a derogatory manner. We’re not sure why. It can’t be that we are jealous of them. Apart from their greater land mass, glorious food and wines, beautiful women, sexy language, exquisite taste and many famous artists, writers and philosophers, they have nothing going for them! Peter’s frog in “Bon Appétit” is curious to see why he is a French delicacy and to find out if he really does taste like chicken! So rather gruesomely he has started to fry his own leg. The interior portrays another Gallic delicacy - escargot. Inscribed on the lid is “4000 tons” - the amount of frogs legs devoured in France each year. This box figurine contains two of the artist’s signature mice. Peter reports that this is completely deliberate and has nothing to do with his gradual slide into senility.
