How did Boiling Frog get its name?

The boiling frog story is a widespread anecdote.  If a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump straight out but, if it is placed in cold water which is slowly brought to the boil, the frog won't sense the danger it's in until it's too late.  In the same way we can often miss the warning signs when things gradually happen around us that could put us at risk.  So the lesson here is to avoid being the boiling frog.
