Poor Greece. First it was the whole debt crisis, then came this pestilence of frogs:
Greek officials say a horde of frogs has forced the closure of a key northern highway for two hours.
Thessaloniki traffic police chief Giorgos Thanoglou says "millions" of the amphibians covered the tarmac Wednesday near the town of Langadas, some 12 miles east of Thessaloniki.
"There was a carpet of frogs," he said.
What's next? Locusts? Well, whatever it is, it probably can't be as bad as what happened to Australia.
