Of course, by "crocodile" they mean "penis," and by "German man" they mean "50 year old transvestite in a schoolgirl uniform."

After which, he asked it politely what crocodiles eat for dinner.

Whereupon, his nose grew.

Is that it?

So, all you skeptics, let me ask you this: if you found yourself on top of a crocodile, being carried by a tidal wave at high speed, what's the first thing that would pop into your mind? Would it be, "I'm hanging on to this critter for dear life," or, "Let me jump off and swim ahead of the crocodile, who will never ever think of chasing me with all this other stuff going on."

Since I was just on another thread where song lyrics were being bandied about, I might as well add this:

I remember when rock was young
Me and Suzie had so much fun
holding hands and skimming stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own
But the biggest kick I ever got
was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were Rocking Round the Clock
we were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock

Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
when your feet just can't keep still
I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
Oh Lawdy mama those Friday nights
when Suzie wore her dresses tight
and the Crocodile Rocking was out of sight

But the years went by and the rock just died
Suzie went and left us for some foreign guy
Long nights crying by the record machine
dreaming of my Chevy and my old blue jeans
But they'll never kill the thrills we've got
burning up to the Crocodile Rock
Learning fast as the weeks went past
we really thought the Crocodile Rock would last


Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player

"In a leetle while, man."
"WHAT"LL WE DO TIL THEN?"
"You could ride your pet Crocostimpy."
"Joooooy!"

I am ok with the idea that he would hold on for dear life.... the whole concept of him leaping upon the crocodile while being carried by a tsunami is the part I am not buying.

I bet the croc was thinking, "Hey, there's a German! I'm gonna ride that farker til this anamoly is through."

Either that, or the German was just trying to have sex with it.

It's not riding the croc that's the dangerous part, it's when you're waxing him, that's the killer :)

Magma lying below Yellowstone Park could erupt at any time...

People live in their millions near San Francisco, a place of terrible danger...

Elsewhere in America, the Oregon coast is long overdue for a tsunami and Yellowstone will surely soon explode...

Japan is a seismic nightmare...


Someone should buy this BBC hack a pint, he needs to relax.

Better yet, a turn of croc surfin' would do him a world of good. Cowabunga!
