Pickled Frog

Fauxtography: Photograph purportedly shows a frog in a jar of pickles.

Claim:   Photograph shows a frog in a jar of pickles.


Example:   [Collected via e-mail, June 2011]

I'm wondering if this is photoshopped or real.


Origins:   The frog in the above-displayed picture might possibly be extra crunchy, but he's definitely not pickled (and likely not kosher). This image is a product of digital manipulation, the winner in a Worth1000.com Photoshop contest entitled Obvious Tampering ("When product tamperers get lazy").
