That little thing causes a panic? I've canoed in Florida surrounded by much larger gators, I tell you.

/Must have been transplants.
//No real Floridian would have been fearful of that baby.

To be fair, the article does not specify if the alligator was tested for meth.

The building only had one floor?

This wouldn't have happened at Del Boca Vista, let me tell you.  They have real leadership.

That looks like a very small gator. I mean, don't try to pick it up, but not sure how it's trapping anybody. Just nudge it aside with your gym bag or whatever.

An elevator filled with members of the  Cuban chapter of the Klan?

*goes to check article*

This.

Here in North Georgia residents spotted an alligator in Lake Lanier and it turned out there really WAS a gator in the lake.  People were not going boating because of it.  People weren't going to the 'beaches' because of it, and they weren't swimming in the lake because of it.

What people thought when they heard alligator:

Reality - This is the trapper and the gator:

not involving meth

So, weed, then.

I've lived in Florida.  It's either meth, weed, or fraud.

If not all of the above.

That really made me LOL.  Well done.

Banging in Mickey and Minnie Mouse costumes while drinking natty light on a fanboat would be the most Florida way to get stuck in an elevator.

The alligator is just scenery and the meth was breakfast.

This.

I would have said "see you later" to my fellow apartment dwellers and exited the elevator.

They were in an elevator. Why did they not simply get off on another floor and use stairs? I mean, how farking dumb were they?

Thinking the same thing. It would have at worse open its mouth and hissed while you stepped around it.

I would be more wary of a domesticated house cat than that tiny thing

Now I'm in the mood for some pan fried gator

Eli WhiskeyDik: JFC. I've seen bigger iguanas.


I came to say exactly that!  I've got iguanas twice that size.  A gator that size is nearly zero threat.  Don't put your fingers directly into its mouth.  Just grab it and take it outside.

Just one alligator? Please. I've dealt with thrice that.

Were they smuggling cocaine and ball pythons in their rectums while singing American Idiot?

Well, the first clue is: they're in Florida.

It was probably a bunch of people with absolutely no experience handling wildlife. They could have been transplants, older or both. This apartment complex is advertised as "luxury apartments" and it's in the middle of a bunch of golf courses and shiat. The people living there probably aren't really used to seeing wildlife of any kind up close.


Smelly Pirate Hooker: loki see loki do: They were in an elevator. Why did they not simply get off on another floor and use stairs? I mean, how farking dumb were they?

Well, the first clue is: they're in Florida.


The other floors have Burmese pythons, plaster-eating snails, mosquitoes with a wide buffet of diseases, rattlesnakes, panthers, bears, sharks, scorpions, wasps and Florida Man.
