"Tod" is how Trump spells "toad" when he is confusing it with "frog," as in "froggy went a courtin'...." Not coincidently, "Tod" in German means "death."

If you're wondering whether those toads are laughing or retching, does it matter? On the one hand, with some people, both behaviors are appropriate. And on the other, Nature isn't laughing and we're gonna pay for it.

There's nothing particularly 'profound' about this painting. As with the companion piece from a while back entitled, "The Precident" this is another craw in my claw. Like a street artist I simply had to paint it out so I could get on with my work.
