Hell Toad – Part II – Tales of Beelzebufo

By Tiber

I came across another mention of “hell toad,” a creature I’ve written about before. They’ve found fossil evidence that there once existed a hefty 10 lb. toad, with teeth, that even harassed the dinosaurs.

They’ve given it the name of “Beelzebufo” – combining “devil” with the Latin word for “toad.“

When I first heard about it, I was grateful that they’d gone extinct but now, I’m not so sure.

With the holidays over, I’m going to have to start looking for a job again. And, as we all know, my job interviews have not gone well.

But just think if I could bring along my own “Hell Toad!” I could take him in on, what do you think, a leash? Or just loose and unblinking on my shoulder? There are so many people applying for jobs these days, wouldn’t you remember me?

The prospective employer would realize that “Hell Toad” now knows where he works. Of course, if the guy hires you, you’d have to follow the company rules and not bring Beelzebufo in anymore. However, if you weren’t hired to work there…

I wish Michael Crichton was still here.

Mostly, I just want to be able to stare, also unblinking, at a boss and say,

“I’d like you to meet my toad…”
