Golf Course ‘Gator…


Looking like an escapee from Jurassic Park on the Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida there has repeatedly been seen a large alligator estimated to be 15 feet in length who has been nicknamed “Chubbs.”  This recent image was taken by a golfer from about 50 feet away.  The ‘gator seems to lumber from one water hole to another, pausing to rest along the way.  He doesn’t bother the golfers, who wisely don’t bother him…

The ‘gator has reportedly been good for business.  It is not known if he is considered a hazard of the course, or what percentage of the golfers there are wearing their Izod shirts.  And for those of us who remember Wally Gator, the early 60’s Hanna-Barbera creation, we offer these theme lyrics:                              

 Wally Gator is a swinging alligator in the swamp.

He’s the greatest perculator when he really starts to romp. 

There has never been a greater operator in the swamp. 

See ya later, Wally Gator.

    Whoa! You’re good. It was only just last night that they premiered a Pringles commercial featuring two actors as golfers (trapped in a golf cart)…and what you might call a professional Chubbs impersonator.

    I’m waiting for a ‘gator to make off with a golf cart, or offer lessons as a pro…

    Or be portrayed in an FTA (Funny Talking Animal) comic book as a DA who makes unverifiable accusations.* Just so the defendant can be acquitted and sarcastically say good-bye with the following:

    “See you later, allegator.”

    *Usually used as a crossword puzzle clue for an eleven-letter synonym for same. 😉
