Toad Lickiní Good
Frankly I donít see the problem here. Itís not like he blew his nose in the clam chowder.
DAVENPORT, Iowa Ė An Iowa restaurant owner said he'll pay a fine after his head chef was videotaped kissing and licking toads in the kitchen Ö On the tape, chef Christopher Turla is seen with two small toads on the prep table. He kisses the toads a few times, licks them, then stuffs them in his mouth.

does he chew them up or swallow them whole ? they must be very tiny toads / someone here in my town has a (live) collection of tiny brightly colored frogs / come to think of it they look good enough to eat / smile / oh, the collector raises fruit flies to feed them
Specialized multi-cellular glands concentrated on the neck and limbs of B. alvarius produce a viscous milky-white venom that contains large amounts of the potent hallucinogen, 5-MEO-DMT. When vaporized by heat and taken into the lungs in the form of smoke, this indole-based alkaloid produces an incredibly intense psychedelic experience of incredibly short duration. There is no hangover or harmful effect. On the contrary, a pleasant psychedelic afterglow appears quite regularly after smoking the venom of B. alvarius, the Psychedelic Toad of the Sonoran Desert.
