At present most of my dictionaries, amongst others the Larousse, are stored due to renovations. I did follow the hard print dictionary at hand, but I was hesitant on the grenouille, as at my village in France here is a lac des grenouilles and those are toads...

digging through the boxes in the storage, I soon found the Collins Robert dictionary.

To make things even more interesting:
to have a frog in once throat translates into "avoir un chat dans la gorge" thus the French have a cat in their throats...

But now the question rises whether cats, dogs, frogs and toads wear MUG's?

Members seem to be taking considerable interest in dresses lately.

So, if MIS is Men In Skirts, then MID would be Men In Dresses.

Mentioned by Skirtyscot-monopipe.

Could apply to garments that hang from the waist, or hand from the shoulders.
