Sometimes a photo is worth a thousand words, and sometimes, it's worth a long, sustained scream. Like this one of Hoda reacting to an overly affectionate bullfrog.
Today, animal ambassador Julie Scardina brought some creatures whose habitats are threatened. There was an anteater, a flamingo, a lemur, and best of all, a bullfrog that wanted to put the moves on poor Hoda.
Just as Kathie Lee noted that the frog appeared to be wearing lipstick, it decided to make a flying leap towards Hoda, who made a rather priceless face.
Poor bullfrog. Unrequited love is the worst.
