Where did fact check frog come from?

Chatting with my friend Alyssa about the Instagram account frog.fellas, I used the “index pointing up” emoji to the left of the “frog” emoji. The combination seemed so perfect that I couldn’t resist creating a character. Alyssa deemed it “fact check frog”, and the rest is history.
