    There’s a powerful psychedelic alkaloid, bufotenin, that’s found in the skin of some species of toads. There is an old urban legend that licking toads could get you high but that doesn’t happen in real life.

    Reminds me not to eat at Japanese (or really any other) restaurants that look like they were run by Applebees and give their chefs names to make them seem more Japanese.

    Perhaps he was pining for Arkansas.

    Unless they’re serving up raw frog skin at this restaurant, I don’t see what the problem is.

      The problem isn’t what he did to the toad, it’s what the toad could’ve done to him. Salmonella and friends are a strong possibility.

    Just goes to show how many of us are getting videotaped at work without our knowledge.

      No, it doesn’t. This wasn’t some Big Brother-style hidden surveillance thing. Turla’s own brother did the recording and posted it on Facebook. He was fully aware of being recorded. Why else would he be making eye contact and mugging for the camera?

      If I were his boss, I’d deduct the fine from his check, but maybe the owner isn’t too worried, since they were hit with 14 health violations in June. What are a couple of toads?

      • BrainDance says:

        @Rich, in most states that would be very illegal. You cant just deduct fines from a persons paycheck. Think about what could potentially go wrong if that was allowed.

        @nanuq, yeah there are a couple toads (Colorado river toad?) that are like that, but the licking part is just an urban legend. You have to pretty much smoke the puss of the back of the toads. I had a friend who owned one, and it was a massive nasty toad that ate mice, definitely not this thing.
