Why Do Europeans Have All The Fun Stories?!?!

I read this and nearly peed on myself.
Hungry crows may be behind exploding toads
More than 1,000 creatures have puffed up and popped

Horror scene
Local environmental workers in Hamburg have described it as a scene out of a horror or science fiction movie, with the bloated frogs agonizing and twitching for several minutes, inflating like balloons before they suddenly burst.

“It’s horrible,” biologist Heidi Mayerhoefer was quoted as telling the daily Hamburger Morgenpost.

“The toads burst, the entrails slide out. But the animal isn’t immediately dead — they keep struggling for several minutes.”
I'd pay good money to see that.

I just have this vision of exploding toads as pets.

What's with the crows? Is the exploding an evolution of the toad species, designed to wipe out the crows that are eating them?
