It is a short story by Mark Twain that was written in 1865. "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" we have a fair every year "Jumping Frog Jubilee" in a town called Angels Camp (California). People come from all over the world to compete. A few years ago a man and his frog came from Australia and won. Simple rules, measure from where the frog is placed and then the frog is encouraged to jump at least three jumps. Then this is measured.
