Description: Alligator Shoes
An Army Ranger was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana and he wanted a
pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant
to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.
After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of
the shopkeepers, the Ranger shouted, "Maybe I'll just go out and get my
own alligator so I can get a pair of shoes made at a reasonable price!"
The vendor said, "By all means, be my guest.  Maybe you will run into a
couple of Marines who were in here earlier saying the same thing."
So the Ranger headed into the bayou that same day and a few hours later
came upon two men standing waist deep in the water.  He thought, "Those
must be the two Marines the guy in town was talking about."  Just then,
the Ranger saw a tremendously long gator swimming rapidly underwater
towards one of the Marines.  Just as the gator was about to attack, the
Marine grabbed its neck with both hands and strangled it to death with
very little effort.  Then both Marines dragged it on shore and flipped it
on its back.  Laying nearby were several more of the creatures.  One of
the Marines then exclaimed, "Damn,  this one doesn't have any shoes
either!"
