Sure, we've already seen a Bearded Dragon playing Ant Crusher, but if that wasn't good enough for you, how about an African Bullfrog trying its tongue at it?

This frog is dead-set on getting the high score, and nothing is going to get in its way. Not even its owner's thumb...

I can't help but laugh every time I see it.

P.S. - Yes, they have teeth.

In a not too surprising move, toy maker Hasbro has sued ASUS, claiming that the Transformer Prime tablet's name infringes trademarks related to Optimus Prime and Transformers children's toys.

Hasbro filed the lawsuit late last week in Los Angeles federal court, seeking damages and a temporary injunction. Hasbro wrote to paidContent:

Hasbro continues to aggressively protect its brands and products and the specific actions we are taking today against Asus underscores yet again Hasbro’s willingness to pursue companies who misappropriate our intellectual property for their own financial gain.
