The Osaka restaurant in Davenport, Iowa, was slapped with a $335 fine yesterday by a health inspector. It turns out he saw a video of chef Christopher Turla kissing two small toads, then licking them and stuffing them in his mouth. That’s a no-no because toads can carry diseases and the chef had the toads in his mouth and then back in his hands. Turla and the restaurant owner say he was joking around, though he might have been hoping to turn them into princes so he could get an endorsement from Prince Spaghetti or learn how to make an authentic version of Veal Prince Orloff.
