Mr. Toad was one of my first nicknames. from wind in the willows, ya know?
cary just asked where it came from.
When I was like 6-7 we went camping in upstate new york. We rented a little motor boat for a day and went puttering around the big lake there. when it was my turn to steer, I was gleefully throwing the boat back and forth randomly, with periods of straight going to lull them into a false sense of security. I almost threw everyone out of the boat (which truth be told was my objective...)
music: office chatter
I *loved* those! I remember some episode where they went and stole someone's caravan (was there a movie? Because that's how I'm remembering it), and Mr. Toad was trying to convince everyone that foie gras was tasty because there was nothing else to eat in the caravan but foie gras and crackers.
For the record, Mr. Toad was totally my favorite character.
I believe there was, 'cause that's about all I saw. Only I seem to remember an animated thing and possibly something stop-motion-ish?
The whole Mr. Toad steals a car thing and the weassels take his mansion while he's in jail? Yeah.
mr toad's car ruled
Yeah-- and he eats bubble and squeak in jail? And there was some river barge they were on? Maybe there was like a Saturday morning cartoon or something.

I remember something animated, I think it was on the Disney Channel.
I also remember on Nickelodeon they had a clay-animation Wind in the Willows. I watched that tons as a kid.
And yes, Ry, you *are* Mr. Toad. In a good way. Just don't wear those stockings that he did.
I don't know, man, I'm not sure if Mr. Toad would have ever had the urge to create the domain www.manpolish.com ;)
