Ok so i went to the zoo yesterday. There they had two large Marine Toads. Also, their keeper refered to the toad record holder, a massive one that was almost a foot long WITHOUT the legs extended. So i looked it up, and i found an article about it.
Dog-sized 'Toadzilla' captured in Australia | Mail Online
Now here's the fail. Quote from the article: "Nicknamed Toadzilla, the reptile's body is over 9 inches long."
Lol?

That is a 'lol' moment. I'm gonna try and make a demotivational about that. Anyone know how to make 'em? If so, just tell me because once it's done I'll post it.

The article says it was the largest one found in aistralia. It does not mention it as being a record holder.

"Prinsen", a toad kept as a pet in Sweden, is listed by the Guinness Book of Records as the largest recorded specimen. It reportedly weighed 2.65 kilograms (5.84 lb) and measured 38 cm (15 in) from snout to vent, or 54 cm (21 in) when fully extended.

"when you accidentally an amphibian a reptile" makes no sense

If one goes back to the original Linnean system of classification then amphibians and reptiles were used interchangebly but that was several hundred years ago.. however can anyone confirm if that is a colloquial usage?

Actually there is a meme online that you say "I accidently [leave out this word] something."

For example:
I accidentally . . . . the whole economy

I did that on purpose; I use proper grammar most of the time; the only times I don't are when I'm trying to be funny or quoting something/someone else.

Yeah...foot long marine toads are not uncommon in Suriname. The transplanted ones in Australia, Florida, and Hawaii don't get as big on average...hence the amazement over the "giant" specimen.
