Vhbehemoth

Behemoth with a case of "ingrown TV show host."

Having "a frog in my throat" is a common expression referring to the hoarseness of one's voice.

Given the fact that the most famous Muppet character, Kermit, is a frog, the expression has found its way into many productions as a part of a joke.
