Desperate Times Call for Toad Licking

toad_main_narrowweb__300x4180.jpg“In October, a Kansas City man was charged with possessing a controlled substance after Clay County authorities determined he possessed a toad with the intent to use its venom to get high.” (from the AP, via Yahoo).

This has to be one of the best quotes of 2007. Seriously, how ridiculous is it, when law enforcement is busting people for toad possession? Let the man have his little croaky friend, already, and if he wants to lick it or pet it or whatever — just let him, okay?
