Funny Little Brazilian Frog

If you told me I was going to receive a frog-related email, I would have assumed it would be about the Scrotum Frog. Nope.
Hello,
I saw a post on your blog, “funny little frog,” and I was wondering if it means something, like an expression. I’m Brazilian, and I am asking this because of a Belle & Sebastian song called “Funny Little Frog.” I'm trying to figure what it means.
Thanks,
Sérgio from Brazil
I love that this blog allows people to send me these kinds of emails, scrotum-related or not. I told my new friend Sérgio that the Bell & Sebastian song mentioned in this post title doesn’t refer to any English idiom that I know if, aside from our cute tendency to refer to gurgly phlegm as “a frog in the throat.” It doesn’t mean anything else, does it?

  2. Reading the title of this post immediately brought to my mind Xuxa, that Brazilian singer who had a show on the Family Channel a long time ago. If, for some crazy reason, you want to watch the clip (in which Xuxa actually sings about a "funny little froggy"), do so here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZNvPT35qVk.
