      Nice toad. I find this on Wiki :
      Rumors, dating from the 1970s, claimed that groups of "hippies" or teenagers were licking the psychoactive toads to get high. One version of the story has hippies in the hills of California chasing toads through the woods to get high. In another version, the infamous cane toad of Australia was said to be licked or ingested both by aborigines and Australian hippies. Cane toads were introduced to Australia in 1935 and are not a native species. Australian Aboriginals have lived in Australia for at least 60,000 years. Licking toads is not biologically practical. In order for these tryptamines to be orally active the human monoamine oxidase (MAO) system needs to be inhibited.

      Oh, and don't kiss it - even on the off-chance. Any resulting prince charming is going to sit around all day watching the telly and eating flies.

      What? No pompous, patronizing and long-winded remarks on how to nurture your artistic creation? I am surprised... Seriously though, it's nice to see this friendly sign of spring arriving. It seems quite happy to let you get so close.
