Ok, I am quite sure enough decades have passed to allow the illegal substances to subside and I am not prone to hallucination on a regular basis. Last night, my wife directed me to remove a dead rat from the deck behind our house. I was not pleased with this task, as it had odviously been dead for a few days and did not smell pleasent at all, but I totally understand the concept that it is the duty of the man to remove dead vermin, kill insects, snakes, and such. The strange part is, that there were two very large toads that appeared to be dining on this dead rodent. I always thought that toads only ate flies and such, but these sure seemed to be enjoying a meal of stinky dead rat. someone help me out here? Toads don't eat rats...do they? These toads were much larger than your typical garden variety.
