Because Gators Need TVs, Too

DPS troopers made an interesting arrest this weekend in Brazoria County. This guy, William Johnson, found an alligator on the side of the road so he loaded it into his back seat. Because that is how normal people would deal with that situation. I frequently think, "I better put that gator in my back seat and drive it around!"

So, then Johnson decided to stop off at a mobile home and steal a large screen TV (Because gators need TVs, too). Johnson asked a neighbor to help him carry the TV to his car, but the neighbor got a little freaked when he saw the alligator. What a sissy!

Because he couldn't carry the TV alone, Johnson decided to abandon the TV in the yard. However, the troops didn't get involved in this whole situation until he did a u-turn on a highway. That suspicious driving will get you every time.

When Johnson was pulled over he notified the officers that he had a water moccasin in the car and that he had been bitten (I guess it was obvious that there was a gator in the car). They also found a Wii controller and a hair trimmer in is pocket in addition to the wildlife in his vehicle. Apparently, the gator enjoyed riding in the car but the snake did not.

Any knowledgable person would know that snakes prefer to do the driving.

Wow, what was a gator doing way out there? Not that I know where "there" is.

onlygrrrl: I guess that's why you are on the outside and he is on the inside...

mad: the question isn't "what was a gator doing there", but "why would you put it in your car?"

Ah, yes that poor old gator got a lot press around here. Now he is looking for an agent.

Hey! This is to notify you of the return of Nervana, who has been posing as Only Grrrl for quite some time now! I signed her in as herself when I was in Katy last week...

So, I guess I can start commenting again now (as Nervana?)
