Competitive Pastime by wikipedia
"Frog jumping is a competitive pastime in which frogs compete to jump certain distances. Frog jumping contests are held in small communities scattered around the United States, as part of the folk culture."
"Frog jumping was made famous in a short story by Mark Twain, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." The annual event in Calaveras County continues, with 4,000 contestants entering the 2007 event. Participants entering the longest jumping frog were to win a $750 prize or $5,000 if their frog breaks the 1986 record of 21 feet, 5¾ inches set by Rosie the Ribeter..""
