This is my kind of thread.  Toilet seats.  Miniature naked people.  Lens systems.  And mutants.

Why is it called a "frog"?

While Markcobb is asking sensible questions, here's a silly one?

Can someone explain the toilet seat joke to me, please?

I wasn't sure how culturally-dependent that one would be.

Basically genuine mother-of-pearl (I don't know its name in other languages) is nice stuff if used in the right place in small quantities tastefully. But used too much and in plastic imitation - e.g. on toilet-seats, it's tacky, and we joke about it by calling it mother-of-toilet-seat.

I always wanted to be a juvenile delinquent but my parents wouldn't let me.

My violin teacher's toilet seat looks something like this:

BTW, your TIFs sometimes make your posts unreadable. Is that something you've done, or is there something I can do to make them load properly? Judging by the formatting of this post, it's the forum.

And so that I don't hijack this thread, there are some nice things here: -

I quite like this one. I thought it was jade at first, but it's horn. I like the way the button matches the frog.

Also, very tacky.
