    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 3: ORGANISER: As long as the frog is in this circle you can touch him. You can probe him out to get him going on the first jump. After that you do not touch Mr. Frog. You can jump up and down, you can slap the canvas, you can scream, you can howl or pray, you can get on your all fours and blow or pray, you can get on your all fours and blow in his ear, you can talk to him, you can do anything but you don't touch the frog after he leaves the circle. Okay?
