Exploding Toads!!!

Gentle Reader(s), I present to you the most excellent product recall of all time: the Case of the Exploding Toads. My wife came across this one back in 2003, and it's been a household favorite ever since. (No, we aren't weird people, why do you ask?)

Text like this is what makes the recall such a priceless gem:

Hazard: A small hose inside the toad can fail, allowing water to fill the toad's cavity. The increased water pressure can cause the toad to explode, posing the risk of injury to anyone nearby.

Note that the recalled toads are not known to be hallucinogenic when licked, unlike certain other toads -- which, ironically, you can still purchase online. Maybe this is because the Colorado River Toad works as advertised?

Note that the exploding toads also lack basic mind control abilities.

All glory to the Hypnotoad!
