rent-a-frog
 n.— «Nowadays, such behavior is strictly prohibited by the fair’s frog welfare policy, a four-page document that outlines rules, including treatment of hundreds of “rent-a-frogs,” which are stored in a cellarlike room under the main jumping stage. There, rules stipulate that frogs are kept cool and in the dark, limited to three jumps daily, and that soothing music, either soft rock or cool jazz, is played at all times.» —“Celebrating, and Quarreling Over, Frogs” by Jesse McKinley in Angels Camp, California New York Times May 20, 2007.
