Alligator Visits LA Motel, Bites Guest
NBC Los Angeles ^ | April 12, 2012 | AP via NBC News

Authorities in Louisiana say a 6-foot alligator showed up at the front door of a Super 8 Motel outside Baton Rouge and bit a guest.

West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Mike Cazes told The Advocate his office got the call about the alligator around 4 p.m. Wednesday in Port Allen.

Matt Marszal, the motel's front desk clerk, said the gator bit one of the motel guests who tried to catch it before Animal Control workers showed up.

Marszal said the man was taken to the hospital. Once Animal Control workers arrived, he said the gator was subdued within 5 minutes.

A guy walks into a Louisiana bar with his pet gator and asks the bartender:
"Do you serve lawyers here?"
"Sure."
"Good. A beer for me and a lawyer for my gator."

1. Sorry. When it used LA motel and an alligator in the same sentence, I naturally assumed the story was about a homosexual rapist in Los Angeles.

2. I try to think the very best of people, but I have no place to go about someone, likely untrained, who would try to catch an alligator.

3. Somehow, I don't find the statements that it's crocodiles, not alligators that are the bad guys, very comforting. I think they're both bad guys.

That's the awesome Troy Landry from Swamp People. He should really have his own show.
