That's no crocodile.

Is a lap swimmer anything like a lap dancer? I bet the buoyancy would make it even more interesting.

"It was quite entertaining actually, only because nobody got hurt."

If someone had gotten hurt it would have been HILARIOUS.

OM MAGOODNESS I know the feeling of this because it can be quite the surprise to find the things in the pool for swimming that you have not the expectation of. Some of these individuals on the Fark.com website might wonder of this part though and that is why can they do the swimming it is quite the cold place right now! Well perhaps it would be helpful for the education. Right now in the Australia it is the summer month of July. I do not think many people have the understanding of the switch of the months across the two hemisphrectomipheres of the earth. It is also important that you have awareness that it is the crocodile mating season so you do not wish for swimming in the pools in this area without much of the carefulness because listen I can tell you this you do NOT wish for the mating by the crocodile. Let us just say that this was the lesson learned in the way that was hard. This is not the intention of the pun.

Was it merely a caiman?

The video of the skaters doing jumps over a live croc was entertaining.

In the swimming pool, fine, as long as he stays in his own lane.

I am NOT sharing steamroom space with him, however.

I am assuming that this is Australia and their version of dropping tadpoles in the pool is dropping baby crocodiles in the pool.

Is it that easy to find and raid a crocodile nest in Australia?

 Mt Isa is in Queensland, and saltwater crocodiles are not alligators, but thanks for ... whatever you were trying to communicate.

Meow needs to provide a link to help degibberishify what they say.

I'm either drunker than I feel or I've been on Fark for too long, because that  meowspeak made perfect sense without even reading it a second time.

Or maybe  meow just isn't as convoluted as I remember.

Does no one look into the pool before they jump in?
 
2014-01-05 11:53:56 PM
Dang. I got excited because I thought it was in Florida. There's only 2,000 crocs in Florida anymore. Although I guess there only used to be a few hundred in the 70s.

You have a LONG LONG way to go before you reach Pocket Ninja territory. You might want to reconsider your cunning plan.

Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but... If I'm swimming laps, and I look in the next lane and there's  A GODDAMN CRCODILE swimming next to me, I absolutely want the pool staff to be alarmed.

This happened in Australia. The swimmer is happy that the deadliest thing he saw was a croc.

ehh, Meow is like our discount Pocket Ninja.

More then serviceable enough for every day use, to make you smile, so you can leave the premium blend for when you really need a pick me up.

/ Keep on keeping on Meow.

Provided you know the difference between an estuarine crocodile (slatie) and a Johnston's crocodile (freshie) then yes. These were all baby freshies, the sort of crocodiles my kids catch on school camps. If they were salties then raiding the nest is a job for professionals.

\don't believe the name, salties like fresh water too

Unlikely, croc doesn't go well with mayo.
