A young blonde was on vacation and driving through the Everglades. She
wanted to take home a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way,
but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were
After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle on prices" attitude
of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, "Well then, maybe I'll
just go out and catch my own alligator, so I can get a pair of shoes for
The shopkeeper said with a sly, knowing smile, "Little lady, just go
ahead and give it a try!"
The blonde headed out toward the swamps, determined to catch an
alligator. Later in the day, as the shopkeeper is driving home, he
pulls over to the side of the levee where he spots that same young woman
standing waist deep in the murky bayou water, shotgun in hand. Just
then, he spots a huge 9-foot gator swimming rapidly toward her. With
lightning speed, she takes aim, kills the creature and hauls it onto the
slimy bank of the swamp.
Lying nearby were 7 more of the dead creatures, all lying on their
backs. The shopkeeper stood on the bank, watching in silent amazement.
The blonde struggled and flipped the gator onto its back.
Rolling her eyes heavenward and screaming in great frustration, she
shouts out: "DAMN ... THIS ONE'S BAREFOOT TOO!"
