Lucky gator. We were evicted from *our* spot under a car; we had to go and live in a lake!

Three foot? City folk call THAT an alligator? Please.

That's nothing. We have our second gator in Chicago in a week.

A gator? really? Is this like your pizza thing where you pretend something you have is actually what you call it, and your "gator" really just isn't a poodle with a skin condition?

A two-foot alligator wouldn't be a threat to a cat, never mind a person. A possum would be more dangerous.

I'd actually say the fact it was only 2 feet is a vote for it not coming from the sewer like people are saying. No way would it be able to tangle with the rats down there.

/once saw a rat dragging half a watermelon down the street, without a care in the world.

Only $1500/month? Must have been in a bad neighborhood...

If it were like the "pizza thing" then the gator would be 100x more awesome than the "gators" in New York and half as pretentious.

No, this is real (new window).

That's interesting.

But what does the alligator think about the GROUND ZERO MOSQUE!!!ELEVENTY!!!1111!!!

Maybe they really do have gators in the sewers...

Gators under cars and in the subway! Fantastic real estate deals! The rivers and beaches!

New York is a hell of a town!

Newtown Avenue and 29th Street in Astoria

Oh shiat, I live two blocks from there. To put it into perspective, an alligator hiding under a car is probably the third or fourth weirdest thing happening on that block at the time.

"Pizza thing" is probably the one of the more fair definitions of the loaf of wonder bread covered in ragu that comes out of chicago that I have heard.

That's what I was thinking. Or maybe it was rent controlled. I wonder if it's still available.

You're so cute when you're jealous. Go have a "slice" of grease on cardboard and enjoy.

Is that space under rent-control? Cause I'm gonna go ahead and put a claim on it.

I didn't see "New York vs. Chicago pizza war" coming in this thread.

Since only one of cities actually serves pizza and not a pile of saucy/cheesy garbage in a doughy bowl, we'll move on to the gator, and say hi to this fella who lives on the golf course where my parents live in South Carolina.

"Duffy said Emergency Service Unit cops used a long pole and a noose to corral the creature into a cage. Its mouth was wrapped in black electrical tape before it was carted off to the nearest precinct." (new window)

Down here in FL one that small you just grab behind the head.


After that do you apologize to your wife and quietly sob yourself to sleep?

Nobody expects the New York vs Chicago Pizza War! Our chief weapon is crust. Crust and toppings. Two weapons.

Double Python points for this thread.

Down on the gulf coast, we'd throw that one back, since he's too small to eat

If NY sewer rats are half as big as flour mill rats a 2 foot gator wouldn't stand a chance down there.

Robert Forster has some questions he'd like to ask.

We just had one 6x as big pulled from a lake.

/that one is cute, though

2 feet long for any crocodillian is baby size. Hardly scary.

Oh, and :

What a pic of a hot chick with a baby croc might look like.
