Frog Eyes

enable images

 Closing your eyes when swallowing does not mean you are a frog, but keeping your eyes open when swallowing means you are not a frog! Do you know why frogs close their eyes when swallowing? Their eyeballs help push their food down their throat! Ew.

I kind of want to draw a Venn diagram to illustrate the logic here, but basically all frogs close their eyes when swallowing (draw a small circle labeled 'frogs') and many non-frog things close their eyes when swallowing (draw a large circle around the small circle and label it 'things that close their eyes when swallowing'). 

A: Frogs can't swallow with their eyes open.
B: So if you close your eyes when swallowing, you might be a frog!
A: ...technically, yes.
