Man Offers Live Alligator For 12-Pack Of Beer
CBS Miami ^ | 12-17-13 | unattributed

Posted on 12/18/2013 12:58:42 PM PST by smokingfrog

It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but a guy walked into a Miami-area convenience store with quite a surprise in the box.

A clerk at the Santa Ana Market in Allapattah was approached by customer Fernando Caignet Aguilera, 64, to buy some beer recently.

“I just picked it up here,” Aguilera said of the alligator. “I seen it here in the grass and I tied it up.”

When the subject of payment was brought up, the customer offered up a live alligator.

“I went into the store to try to exchange it for a beer,” Aguilera told CBS4′s Marybel Rodriguez.

Aguilera continued, “In my mind, I was trying to get some beer because I didn’t have no money. So I said, let me try the alligator.”

Yes, a live alligator in a cardboard box.

“Do you have to hit me on the head with the newspaper?”

(if you don’t know the beginning of that joke, you are pretty young).

One night in Texas, I had to trade my monkey for a tank of gas.

That isn’t a joke.

A salesman is driving toward home when he sees an Indian thumbing for a ride on the side of the road.
As the trip had been long and quiet, he stops the car and the Indian gets in.

After a bit of small talk, the Indian notices a brown bag on the front seat. “What’s in bag?”, the Indian asks the driver.

The driver says, “It’s a bottle of wine. I got it for my wife.”

The Indian is silent for a moment then says, “Good trade.”

I don’t remember the type, but I don’t think it was the most common one of the time.

One night in Georgia, I traded dinner and a movie for some monkey.

He went on to bigger and better things.

Interesting tagline.

Although that isn’t a Chimpanzee, it does remind me of a night that I baby sat for one at my house, their physical power can be a little scary when you see it in your own home and it acting like an upset child as you try to calm his behavior.

I just saw my tagline, it was a remnant from another post on the libertarian party, thanks for the heads up.

I’d tell him “No problem. Bring Elvis back when he’s full grown. Leave Tubbs out of this. He’s not gonna be keen on me eating the gator, making wallets and boots out of him”.

Yeah, Chimps are way outside the pet envelope for me, along with anything else that might kill or eat me. I’d be happy with a nice, lazy dog.

Sounds like a fair trade to me.

How big was the gator and what brand of beer? lol

Alligators probably aren't worth so much in Miami.
Now take him up to New York and you might have yourself a commodity.
