    Mr. Toad epitaph

    Hey everyone, I have a somewhat random question for you. I would assume a lot of you know about the Mr. Toad tribute in the pet cemetery of the Haunted Mansion. There is supposedly an epitaph on the tombstone which reads:
    Here lies Toad
    It's sad but true
    Much less marketable as Winnie the Pooh

    I have looked at this tombstone multiple times but have never seen where it is or where it even could be written. I also cannot find a picture of it anywhere online. Can anyone actually confirm that this exists?

    There is a small statue of Mr. Toad, I believe towards the back near the fence, behind a parrot. There isn't a tombstone, and I believe the so-called epitaph is just something someone made up and doesn't exist.

    Yea, I'm sorry - when I said "tombstone", I meant the statue.
    I always assumed the epitaph was made up, but some people write / say that its actually there. I was just wondering if anyone had definitive proof of this either way.

    I know of no proof. The statue is readily visible...there isn't much of a place to put an epitaph though, unless it is engraved on the flat base - which wouldn't be visible to any guest, really.

    if it is actually even there we probably wouldn't see it anyway... its too far away to read this with the naked eye...
