I can picture this guy saying in Falzthebahdguy’s voice, if you get a taste of my delicacy, you will be stucked on me. I was browsing through BBC and found this pictorial article on smoked frog kebabs eaten by some Nigerians. I wasn’t aware of smoked frogs as a delicacy in Nigeria. It’s not surprising though because frogs is a common delicacy in many parts of the world.

The man pictured above is from Benue State and says it is very popular there. He says he catches the frogs with his bare hands, skewers them on a stick then lets them dry in the sun for six or seven hours. After that, he smokes the frogs and sells them. Here are some pictures below but for more pictures and information go to this BBC article.
