Stay in bed

First, there’s a “tropical disturbance” in the Gulf, which has turned the sky a color that falls halfway between “angry” and “Surrender Dorothy”. And now, of course, there’s this:

An alligator that somehow got into the eastbound left lane of Interstate 10 on the Bonne Carre Spillway has been hit by a vehicle and is slowing traffic to a crawl, state police said.

The alligator is still alive and a nuisance officer from St. Charles Parish has been dispatched to try and remove the animal, a Louisiana State Police spokesman said.

    I’ve had enough!!

    One more report on an alligator attack without the knowledge of whether or not it was a marked farmed /gator is a waste of our time, and the publics education of what the difference between farm and narural gators are!

    Well, geaux ahead inform the public of the extra forced 14%.

    Bet that gators tail was notched too, and can be traced right back to a specific farm/ranch.

    The natural gators are minding their own business aren’t they?!

    Tell ’em!

    What in God’s name is a nuisance officer? And what else, besides wrangling injured gators, do they do? More importantly, how can I become one as I have been known to make a complete nuisance of myself?
