Alligators

It seems like there may be a serious alligator problem brewing down in Florida. Back in the 1970’s, their population was dwindling, so legislation was enacted to protect them. Now, several decades later, their population is booming. So much so, that it would almost seem competition for food sources is driving them to attack humans.

What can be done about this? Well, another issue at the front of the news cycle these days is the illegal alien issue. You notice I didn’t call them “immigrants”? Immigration is a legal process whereby people are legally admitted to our country. They’ve bypassed that and crossed the border illegally. They aren’t immigrants, they are criminals.

Be careful what you’re drinking

Hungarian builders who drank their way to the bottom of a huge barrel of rum while renovating a house got a nasty surprise when a pickled corpse tumbled out of the empty barrel, a police magazine website reported.

According to online magazine www.zsaru.hu, workers in Szeged in the south of Hungary tried to move the barrel after they had drained it, only to find it was surprisingly heavy and were shocked when the body of a naked man fell out.

Yikes! Apparently, the guy had died, and his wife shipped him back from Jamaica 20 years earlier to avoid the cost and paperwork of an official return.

UPDATE: It seems Reuters has retracted the story…
