Don’t be taken in
By his welcome grin

Within his chin!

I’m not playing with anything that has a mouth half the size of a man’s body.

(There’s a First Wife joke in here somewhere.)

Apparently the crock prefers a basalmic vinagrette marinade over a case of Fosters.

Lawyer for croc claims self defense!!! Hey what would YOU do if a strage drunk sat on you? That said I see no purpose in getting that close to one unless you are going to turn it in to shoes, bags and various stylish accessories.
