Sarah and the Alligator Shoes



Sarah was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana. She wanted a
pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant
to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking. After becoming
very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of the shopkeepers,
Sarah shouted, "Maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator so I
can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!"

The shopkeeper said, "By all means, be my guest. Maybe you'll luck out
and catch yourself a big one!" Determined, Sarah turned and headed for
the swamps, set on catching herself an alligator. Later in the day, the
shopkeeper is driving home when he spots Sarah standing waist
deep in the water, shotgun in hand. Just then, he sees a huge 9 foot
alligator swimming quickly toward her. She takes aim, kills the creature
and with a great deal of effort hauls it on to the swamp bank. Laying
nearby were several more of the dead creatures. The shopkeeper
watches in amazement.

Just then Sarah flips the alligator on it's back, and frustrated,
shouts out, "Dang it, this one isn't wearing any shoes either!"
