why does the frog call the nightingale brainless? was it really brainless?
The Frog called her a brainless creature because the nightingale did not use her common sense (wits) and sing according to the latest trend in order to attract a huge crowd. No, I don't think that the Nightingale was brainless. She was just a simple, gullible creature who was manipulated by the evil frog. One cannot say a person brainless just because he or she gets fooled by the evil spirit.
