Chef Christopher Turla earned his Davenport, Iowa restaurant a $335 ticket Wednesday after health inspectors saw a video of him kissing and licking toads in the kitchen.[Previous TGIS]
The video shows the chef with two small toads on a kitchen prep table at the restaurant Osaka. He kisses the toads a few times, licks them, then stuffs them in his mouth.
Turla says it was just a joke. But the Scott County Health Department isn't laughing.
Restaurant owner Yidi When says he'll pay the ticket. He also says Turla is just a funny guy who needs some more training about restaurant sanitation.
