Land Shark

It seems the smell of the teriyaki chicken that a Hilton Head couple was grilling in their back yard was too much to resist for one of their more carnivorous neighbors. After hearing a muffled knock on the front door, the couple looked out the window to see a six foot gator trying desperately to ring the doorbell.

The couple did not invited him in, and the gator took off before anyone realized he had neglected to bring wine for his hosts.


**Editor's note: photo caption contest in comments.
Say that three times fast.

No wine for the hosts? What a douchebag!

The Dummy said...

Later gator!

Flounder said...

I always wondered what happened to Calzone.

Think Frustrated said...

Where would he have put the wine AND the Hershey's Pot of Gold that he was supposed to bring? Gator = No Pockets.

Egan said...

Who do you suppose is in that gator costume? I'm going to guess it's Carrot Top.

Brookelina said...

Lo Lo - no kidding. I'm sure the other gators have shunned him by now.

DD - booooooo!!!

Flounder - oh come on. No way would Calzone forget to bring wine.

TF - he could have put it all in his alligator bag.

Egan - no way. Carrot Top isn't bright enough to find the doorbell.

ducklet said...

oh, this photo has caption contest written all over it.

"We've replaced Moira's prom date with a 6 foot alligator. Using our hidden cameras, let's see if she can tell!"

Brookelina said...

Brando - I love it! I'm going to add the caption contest in to the post.

God almighty! And I thought the Jehovah's Witnesses were bad!!

sunshine said...

I wonder who took the picture??

Blonde Vigilante said...

You can ring my be-e-ell, ring my bell

Spirit Of Owl said...

"Don't just stand there you bastards! My toes stuck in the fucking door!"

sleepydog said...

He's re-enacting the scene from the beginning of Happy Gilmore

"I wanna kiss you all ovah
and ovah again ..."

sleepydog said...

....As he licks the intercom box ...


"You no stay for breeakfast ??"

Brookelina said...

Darth - land shark!

Sunshine - apparently their neighbor took it. Click the link, the whole insane story is there.

Blonde - ding dong ding.

Owl - his toes or his fingers? Wait, what are they called on an alligator...

Sleepy - I've never seen Happy Gilmore. I think now I'm glad of it.

Is it weird that the first thing I thought was, "he's humping the wall!"

Alistair! said...

calzone would so too turn up with no wine...no food...no drugs and then leave suspiciously sticky substances on the shoes in the closet.

ChickyBabe said...

Knock knock...

Übermilf said...

Maybe they should barbecue some gator meat. That outta keep his scaley hide away.

Sysm said...

"I'm Katherine Harris, and I'd appreciate your vote

Bill said...

"Darling! I'm home! ... (Damn voodoo bitches. That's the last time I use them to get rid of my wife)."

Egan said...

Who's there Chicky?...

matty said...

yikes! ...when I was in high school i had a friend with loads of money and a pool. ...lived in southeast texas. she used to get gators in her pool. always freaked me out -- you'd have to look in the pool before you jumped in. creepy.

Mone said...

hahahaha, such a great shot!!

jiggs said...

my caption:

I'M A MOTHERFUCKING ALLIGATOR MOTHERFUCKERS!!! LET ME IN AND I'LL EAT THE SHIT OUT OF YOU. LITERALLY. HAVE I MEANTIONED THAT I'M A MOTHERFUCKING GATOR!?!?!

Brookelina said...

Sandra - hmmmm. Now that I look at it again...

Alistair - is that your caption? It's a little wordy, don't you think?

Chicky - who's there?

Ubie - gives a whole new meaning to "I'm here for the barbecue!"

Sysm - now that is just mean...gators don't deserve that.

Bill - that's very Freudian.

Egan - that caption sucks.

Matt - they go in the pools down here in Florida too! You know what's even scarier? Funnel web spiders. They jump in pools in Australia, blow a bubble around themselves, and can hang out for days. Oh, and they can kill you. I hate them.

Mone - doesn't it totally look like he's reaching for the doorbell?

Jiggs - we may have a winner!

Leezer said...

Man, I've never seen anything like it! I would rather see a bill collector at my door than that. When I was a baby my family lived in New Orleans; my Mom wouldn't let us play in the yard because of the spiders and snakes - but no mention of alligators. Yikes.

~d said...

alligator on a stick is quite tasty-and I never have owned alligator shoes...or is that crocodile shoes?

**where is your meme?**

Egan said...

Sorry, I'm not feeling terribly creative. Actually I was just flirting with ChickyBabe as usual.

Think Frustrated said...

"The Johnsons, not to be outdone by their neighbors' new alligator skin mailbox, went a step up and got a whole alligator."

Miss Syl said...

"Despite desperate door-pounding and drunken shouts of, 'Hey, that ain't no tail I'm ringin' the doorbell with, people, if ya know what I'm sayin'!', Ali was forced to realize that, yet again, he would be denied admittance to that bitch Roslyn Loretta Holinski's annual neighborhood 'Eyes Wide Shut' potluck.

Flounder said...

Who the fuck put this house in the middle of my swamp?

Amy said...

"Amy had a heart attack when she answered the door...was it another salesman? Yep, a shoe and handbag one!"

Brookelina said...

Hilarious!

ChickyBabe said...

Allie.

Manic Mom said...

Imagine what would have happened if they opened the door without seeing who was calling first?

SHIT!

MoDigli said...

ha! This picture/story just aired on our local news! You are WAY AHEAD of them, Brooke!

ing said...

Let me in! Let me in! The feeder's empty and the hummingbirds are pissed!!

Bill said...

"Shit! What was in that damn meatloaf?"

Buffy said...

I just can't get over how freaky it is....

Brookelina said...

Allie who?

Freckle Face Girl said...

This weekend a friend told a group of us about this & her boyfriend told everyone that she must have been on drugs. I'll send her the proof. Thanks!
