Better than a free pair of crocs, I reckon.

If that's 9 foot, my dick's a bloater

I bet the croc has better resale value then a GM does at this moment.

Gator meat is tasty. Such a waste to let the state come in and take it away.

So, you're saying that they are giving out a free pair of boots with each new car?

some (dis)assembly required.

Seconded. Then again, it was deep-fried, and I'm sure that if I deep-fried my socks, they would taste decent.

As long as the directions are in English and no special tools are needed.

Why didn't the car's salesman just try and put that gater in a car TODAY! I'm sure it would have left and never returned.
 
2009-04-28 10:15:21 PM
they should give away free tools with cars. set of milwaukees with any truck. that'd be dope.

Even worse than the gators are the gator fans. Their teams have a lot of talent. But honestly, when your team is up by 24, there's no need to blow up when the ref makes a bad call in favor of the losing team.

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

obviously these people aren't from Florida.
gators aren't that quick on land.
although I admit I would have been surprised (and have been in the past) I wouldn't have run away like a little wimp. they won't mess with you unless you get to close, especially out of the water.

The_Sponge: Seconded. Then again, it was deep-fried, and I'm sure that if I deep-fried my socks, they would taste decent.

Gator's like halfway between the consistency of chicken and pork, so cooking it is half the battle, but deep-frying it does remove much of the preparation skill (but not any of the taste).

So how did it get there? Are gators migratory?

Now the folks around south Louisiana
Said Amos was a hell of a man
He could trap the biggest meanest alligator
And he'd just use one hand
That's all he got left cause an alligator bit it
Left arm gone clear up to the elbow

If I went to work and found a 9 foot alligator in the parking lot, I wouldn't scream and run away. I'd probably poke it with a stick for a while, then call the guys in my department who used to take gator bite force measures by sitting on them and getting them to bite the forcemeter.

/Maybe they'd let me help sit on it
//Sounds like fun

The economy is so bad even the gators want to trade in for something with good gas mileage.

I was unlucky enough to have my car breakdown near shiatty Winslow Az and the Ford dealer there was giving out goats with each F150 purchase... This being months ago.

the dealership shoulda make gator barbeque and made it an event to attract customers. I know that's what the guys in the Pontiac dealership down the road woulda done.

mreuther: So how did it get there? Are gators migratory?

Almost, it is rutting season. All the big bulls are either on the move looking for loving or if they have found it they are driving out the smaller bulls for territory and nooky rights. So at this time of year it is not uncommon for decent sized gators to show up in odd places. Often the larger guys will chase the smaller guys out into populated areas.

Years ago I used to work at a call center very close to the Jacksonville zoo, and the females in the zoo would draw all kinds of bulls in to the area looking for nooky. We would find them in the parking lot rather often. You had to keep an eye out on what was under your car, especially at night.

Nothing
is quite as disconcerting as the pissed off growling hiss of a horny gator under your car at 2 in the morning.

What kind of mileage does the alligator get?

is it true that if you get your gator from a saturn dealership, then you lose your job, they LET YOU KEEP THE GATOR?

farkwell: is it true that if you get your gator from a saturn dealership, then you lose your job, they LET YOU KEEP THE GATOR?

I work for the company, and people have been asking me a lot about what's going to happen to Saturn. And I have to say that we're strong, and have strategies to weather the storm. Our new rebates include not one -- but two -- gators with every Saturn purchase. Male/male, male/female, female/female... whatever you want. Saturn doesn't discriminate based on alligator sexual preference, and we will marry your gators on-site when you sign.

that's great. hyundai has this horrible plan where they will make your payment for three months if you lose your job. THEN they'll take the gator back. take it BACK?

Beware Old Monsieur Gator, he's real hungry, and just because he caint catch you the way he used to, doesn't mean he caint eat!

We at Saturn will let you attempt to breed your gay gators, so long as you pay us.

An inbred gator is just as good, sales-wise, as a purebred gator.

Alligators can run up to 30 mph in short bursts.
That is why many little rascals on their little rascals die,
it's not their age, it's their transports.

They can, but they don't ever full out pursue. They lie in wait and snap. The way they've evolved and with the habitat they live in, food WILL come to them. If you can get away from them in the first few steps, they won't pursue. But if you're not fast enough to run those first few steps, hasta la vista.

So tell me again, what is the difference between a crocodile and an aligator?

Alligators eat more Cajun food than crocodiles do.
