A funny alligator story...

Two young guys came in with an alligator. They said they both had tags. They'd gotten the first one, about 8 feet, last weekend and tried to skin it themselves. After a few hours, they decided this was WAY too much like work. They started calling around trying to find someone to finish the job, but no one would tackle a half started job. They went back to work to finish the skinning the alligator, cutting out the meat, trimming, and packaging it for freezing. It took HOURS.  Early this week, they came in bringing us Alligator #2, a 10 footer. They backed up to the door. We unloaded it, weighed it, took their photos and their order. They walked out the door about 20 minutes later with a  2011 alligator sticker, new Cordray Alligator cap, and their appointment to pick up the packaged meat on Saturday and their trophy mount in April. As they walked out the door, I heard one guy say, "Man, oh Man! This one sure was easier than the last!"
