What you really end up with is this:
Sure, it's cute, but it's still just a frog. The essential nature of the frog hasn't changed, and after an initial "Oh hey, a frog in a hat" wears off, we're on to better, and infinitely more interesting things. On the plus side, it didn't cost you tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars to raise and train the frog to wear a hat, to find out that only the most rabid, rich, and bored, fans of frogs will enjoy frogs in hats.
This brings us to dressage (if I had a nickel...). All the horsey people who do dressage (yes, I know a few too many) say that dressage is super hard. You don't know guys, it's so hard, OMG!
Don't care. Dressage is boring for everyone and we all know it. Even the horsey dressage people know it. How do we know this? Because all the horsey-dressage people love this:
If you turn down the volume, it's a video of a horse doing fancy walking. Which is dressage. Next to buying corn futures, it's the most expensive way to be bored known to mankind.
If what you pursue as a hobby is so dull that you have to dress it up with lights, mirrors, wigs and dance tunes, maybe you should pursue amateur cabaret.
Look what bored people have done to canoeing:
This is worse than dragon boat racing. Fucking dragon boats, just go paddle you team-building ding-dongs.
All I'm saying is that you should enjoy your dull sport the way it is. Look at tennis. Hit ball, repeat. Love it. Here is a video of some "crazy" moments from tennis. Mostly they are ungodly dull.
Mis-hits! Broken strings! Wobba-wubba-woo! This is the most true depiction of tennis ever made. This is why it doesn't sell and people don't play anymore (except for diehards like me and Anonymous). They've moved on to more exciting things.
Not everything needs to be popular. Not everything needs to be EXTREME! and taken from reasonable to dangerous in order to score ratings. Not every frog needs a hat.
