There is something about a toad that makes it seem humorously cute. Protruding eyes, bumpy skin that is surprisingly soft to the touch and oversized webbed feet add to its allure. All of these features seem an unlikely combination that somehow fits perfectly together in a way that only Mother Nature can conjure. I decided to elaborate on all the toad’s attributes with a “twist” to make it even more comical.
