Frog Farming  

From the archives of Modern Mechanix comes this gem: In the 1930s, there was apparently a fortune to be made in bullfrog farming (Rana catesbeiana), and you could pick up a whole dozen of them from a company in New Orleans for under $5, instruction manual included!

From the article:

"The advantage of frog farming is the fact that you can start practically anywhere and expand gradually as your profits mount. A vacant city lot, an old orchard, or even a back yard can be utilized."

Hmm, sounds a good way for a bullfrog to hitch a ride to the West Coast.
