Aren't cane toads the ones that when you lick them, you start hallucinating?

wh0mprat: What about shooting them? If there's a bounty on toads, a .22 with a scope could earn you tens of dollars! Like the rat/nutria bounty in New Orleans.

Cold blooded animals can be tough to kill with a .22. It's gonna take a shot to the brain and that isn't a big target. I think you might have better luck with a smoothbore .22 (new window) shooting shotshells.

JesseL: I wonder how many people really give a damn how much the toads suffer?

They're ugly, so... not many.

I guess it's a good thing toads aren't cute, like seals.

Tinn-Can: and in 20 years they will have a rampant serial killer problem from all the kiddos blasé attitude towards killing things...

/hire professionals


Hire professionals? Oh man, you have no idea how rampant they are. It's an infestation of proportions you cannot believe.

People drive over them as sport - and to kill them. Cruel... They can't help being poisonous and ugly.

Dogs in the Outback lick the backs of canetoads and trip off the chemicals. Vets there routinely see dogs who have overdosed. {Google it!}

JesseL: I wonder how many people really give a damn how much the toads suffer?

I'll bet if they discovered a substance that was agonizingly lethal to cane toads, but completely innocuous in all other respects, they'd be spraying it all over the place.


FTFA: The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has said it backs the plan by Queensland state lawmaker Shane Knuth to launch "Toad Day Out," but only if the creatures are killed in a humane way, such as euthanizing them in a freezer.

Everyone else in Australia takes delight in swerving to NOT avoid them when they see the things on the highway.
 
2008-04-02 03:12:13 PM
JesseL: Somebody needs to convince the Chinese that the toads are an aphrodisiac.

Or maybe the Japanese can figure out a way to carefully slice them up and serve them on a billet of rice so that they're not (usually) deadly.


You know, I'm Japanese so I instantly caught the racist joke, but. . . it was so pathetic I don't feel offended so much as stupider for having read it.

How 'bout them toad suckers, ain't they clods?
Sittin' there suckin' them green toady frogs!

Suckin' them hop toads, suckin' them chunkers,
Suckin' them a leapy type, suckin' them plunkers.

Look at them toad suckers, ain't they snappy?
Suckin' them bog frogs sure make's 'em happy!

Them hugger mugger toad suckers, way down south,
Stickin' them sucky toads in they mouth!

How to be a toad sucker, no way to duck it,
Get yourself a toad, rear back, and suck it!

You don't lick them, you boil them and then drink the water

/Or so I've heard

Teknowaffle: Aren't cane toads the ones that when you lick them, you start hallucinating?

Not really. The cane toads we have here are Bufo marinus and their skin only contains bufotenin, the ones with DMT on their skin are Bufo alvarius. They look very similar though.

"We only want to save the cute animals, don't we? Yeah. Why don't we just have animal auditions. Line 'em up one by one and interview them individually. "What are you?" "I'm an otter." "And what do you do?" "I swim around on my back and do cute little human things with my hands." "You're free to go." "And what are you?" "I'm a cow." "Get in the farking truck, ok pal!" "But I'm an animal." "You're a baseball glove! Get on that truck!" "I'm an animal, I have rights!" "Yeah, here's yer farking cousin, get on the farking truck, pal!" We kill the cows to make jackets out of them and then we kill each other for the jackets we made out of the cows."

Nasty toads can kill cats, dogs and small kids.

Teknowaffle: Aren't cane toads the ones that when you lick them, you start hallucinating?

From wikipedia:
"Bufotenin, one of the chemicals excreted by the Cane Toad, is classified as a Class 1 drug under Australian drug laws. This is the same classification as heroin and cocaine. It is thought that the effects of bufotenin are similar to that of mild poisoning; the stimulating effect, which includes mild hallucinations, lasts for less than one hour. Since the Cane Toad excretes bufotenin in very small amounts, and other toxins in relatively large amounts, toad licking could result in serious illness or death."

Two questions for our Aussie pals out there:

1) How strict are your gun laws?

2) Are M-80's legal?

If the answer to #2 is yes, I envy how much fun you guys could have.

JackDAndCoke: When I read the headline, I thought it was some Australian euphemism for masturbation. Apparently not.

For you and all the others who don't get the reference:

(From Bart vs. Australia)
Owner: [sweeping a bunch of toads out] Get out, get out! Shoo, shoo. Get out of here, yuck! These bloody things are everywhere. They're in the lift, in the lorry, in the bond wizard, and all over the malonga gilderchuck.

Clerk: They're like kangaroos, but they're reptiles, they is.

Marge: We have them in America. They're called bullfrogs.

Clerk: What? That's an odd name. I'd have called them "chazzwazzers".

This "chazzwasser", is it some sort of Preppie, Frat-Boy, BMW-driving arsehole who seems to infest every corner of Hoboken, NJ or NYC?

1) Very.

2) I doubt it. No automatics or another type {handguns?} unless required professionally, and then must be licensed, etc.

Re: #2 - I could never. Would never. Cruel and messy, in that order. I'd rather buy a huge deep-freeze.
