Sumo Frogs

SRSly now. Dressing frogs up in little sumo thongs and making them wrestle? Is there no novelty to which Japanese bars will not stoop? At this rate they'll soon be as weird as those German bars with their cockroach racing and their sports-predicting octopodes.

But Wrestler #4 with the mock-corroboree body-paint is just wrong. Not only is it an appropriation of Aborigine culture, but also it's cheapening the whole contest if you have to beef up the sumo frogs with a WWF gimmick.

Also, Across the Andes by Toad-back.

UPDATE: In comments, fish points out the existence of prior art.
Also, Bonus Haiku:
