Does he do something to free himself, or does something happen to him? Would he have been in danger of being eaten had he remained stuck? in danger of starving to death? being crushed?
Does he use his tongue in any way?

Is it important to find out where the frog was stuck? Mud?Glue?Twigs?
Is the setting a natural one or artificial? (I mean in a lab or something)
Luckily not killed - Does this means it escaped unharmed? Or atleast experienced some injuries?

Was he where you would usually expect a frog to be? (not where he was stuck, I mean the general environment) Had a human placed him there?

So a human was lucky that he escaped...was this human an adult? male? If Frog had not escaped, would Human have died? got hurt? lost money? been emotionally scarred? Was Human in the vicinity when Frog got stuck? when he escaped?

Was he where you would usually expect a frog to be? (not where he was stuck, I mean the general environment) remember it was indoors, but apart from this it is not unusual for a frog to turn up in a place like this Had a human placed him there? no, he came on his own account

So a human was lucky that he escaped...was this human an adult? male? yes If Frog had not escaped, would Human have died? no got hurt? no(ish) lost money? no been emotionally scarred? a little bit Was Human in the vicinity when Frog got stuck? no when he escaped? yes

Would the bad effect on Human be: smell of dead Frog? Discovery of dead Frog? Is Frog stuck in part of the house itself? Such as the ventilation system?

You said Frog would have been eaten if he had remained stuck, correct? Would he have been eaten by an animal? eaten by Human maybe? Did he get stuck in Human's food? maybe Human's sandwich? And his head, which wasn't stuck, enabled Human to notice him before he took a bite?

Lol, I thought that being stuck between two slices of bread would make him rather hard to spot, further emphasising his luck that he was spotted and rescued. But I have no idea how he would get stuck there in the first place, haha =P

Soup? Porridge? Spaghetti? Maybe he was entangled!

Soup? Porridge? Spaghetti? Maybe he was entangled! I almost wish this was the solution. I wonder if you can guess the type of food he got stuck in, and how... let's see!

Was he trapped in liquid food? hmmm... yope Solid? yope Wrappings? no Is his size relevant? I think he was an average sized Rana temporaria, for interest

Is he a tadpole? so, no

Ice cream? Maybe he hopped in when it was liquid, then the tub was put in the freezer and the ice cream froze round him? But then he'd freeze, wouldn't he... hmmm.

This is my first time posting but I thought I'd take a stab at it. Is it jello? something like this! Or pudding?

Well done all on solving my very first puzzle! I think I will now **********************SPOIL**********************

According to a local urban legend, a restaurant was preparing pork jelly during a cold winter by placing some bowls of soup in a cold wine cellar. A frog was probably looking to hibernate over the winter in what he thought was a small puddle... but ended up being stuck in the jelly as it hardened. According to the story, the waitress served the jelly to a guest, who was quite surprised to see a live frog blinking in his food. The frog was then saved by carefully warming up the jelly, and now is the hero of this locally popular story.

Thanks for solving it, I had a lot of fun with this small puzzle!
