Cat Vs. Alligator

Saturday, 5 February 2011

A courageous cat shows vicious alligators who’s the boss!

In the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou, a docile but brave cat defends its territory by attacking an alligator wich emerges from the water. The gator retreats – only to promptly strike back with backup.

When the two angry gators approach the cat it doesn’t even think of giving up this unequal battle.

The really elusive issue of course is: Who the hell are these people, standing just a few meters away from two alligators, in shorts and flip flops…?!

However, as the saying goes: When you are up to your ass in alligators it is difficult to remind yourself your initial objective was to drain the swamp…

And beware, as Cordell Hull (Nobel Prize for Peace in 1945 for his part in organizing the United Nations) warned:

Never insult an alligator until after you have crossed the river!

(Cordell Hull)
