The discussion forum thread for strip #153:

Qvaak: How about the punch line, "Rip it"? I understand it's a play on "ribbit", but my limited English skills (or quick web surf) don't really get me further than that. What does "rip it" intuitively mean in this frog/weather context?

DMM: It's similar to Nike's "just do it". Basically an affirmation that you're cool and you do cool stuff.

AnnieFan: Weather reporters tell people they're cool?

DMM: If they're frogs, they do. Cite me just one counterexample.

Panpear: You mean like this?
