Never heard “Toad Strangler” before.

We always called it a “Frog-Strangler,” but “Toad” works, too.

Texan: "Spell ‘rat’!"
Yankee: "R-A-T"
Texan: “See? I KNEW you were a Yankee. I meant like Rat now!”

Then I guess you spelled it wrong.

Naw. He spelt it rot. 'Tis yanks can’t unnersan plain English.

An’ we’s call 'em “Toad Stranglers” 'cuz toads bigger 'n frogs, and ever’body knows thar ain’t a point ‘n goin’ ‘frog spearin’.

But my personal fav is “fixin’ ta,” simply on aconna it drives yanks nuts.
