Well I never licked one, although it's supposed to get you high...but I've never even heard of toad sucking, is that specific to your region? ;-)

But I did get some practice with my golf swing, and once booted one over a fence. These days they have big culls, but you have to freeze them for humane reasons.

The one in that photo is the biggest I have seen though.

Nope - not me. I went through Conway Arkansas and saw Toad Suck Park

Dang we just missed the festival there

What does "Toad Suck" mean anyway?
Well, the answer is quite simple... Long ago, steamboats traveled the Arkansas River when the water was at the right depth. When it wasn't, the captains and their crew tied up to wait where the Toad Suck Lock and Dam now spans the river. While they waited, they refreshed themselves at the local tavern there, to the dismay of the folks living nearby, who said: "They suck on the bottle 'til they swell up like toads." Hence, the name Toad Suck. The tavern is long gone, but the legend and fun live on at Toad Suck Daze.
