The Most Interesting Frog In The World grew up poor in the Louisiana bayou. Given name, Milton Churchill, was born to parents Milton, Sr. and Mildred Churchill. Both parents were accomplished swimmers and jumpers. Father was an entomologist for the University of Louisiana. Milton showed early interest in eating insects and enjoying the outdoors, but his true loves are beautiful women, travel, fine cigars, night life, economics, philosophy and politics. Dubbed, “Le Rude Frog”, by the Parisian press, Monsieur Churchill is known for his brevity and honesty. Character traits not always welcome in a, shall we say, civilized society.
