What does this mean?
A friend of mine on fb posted a photo of himself with a frog plush on his head that said on the little plush frog’s shirt “Once a Prince...Now a toad.”
Is that quote meant to be a joke or literal?

There is a famous fairy tale wherein the prince of the realm was turned into a frog by an evil witch. The only way the frog could be returned to be a prince again was for a beautiful (they're always beautiful) princess to kiss the frog. Which meant that as a frog the prince had to woo the princess and get her to like him...as a frog.
Long story...short. She kisses the frog and he returns to being a prince and they live happily ever after...until their first kid comes along, but that's another story.
"Once a prince...Now a toad" means he's looking for that beautiful princess to change him back into being a prince.
