Claude (pictures I like)
It's not true.
Claude started out a normal alligator in the swamps of Louisiana.
He had friends. Mostly other 'gators, you know, but Claude was a bit less inclusive than most of his kind and, one day, befriended a young boy. Young boys with 'gator friends aren't so uncommon in the wilds of the bayou. It's just that it usually doesn't end well.
Neither did this one but not for the reasons you might think.
Claude, being a 'gator, managed to escape, but what he saw of what happened to the boy drained him of all of his color.
He's happy, now, to live in the museum. It means he's safe.
He tries not to think about the boy.

Instinct took over and he ate the boy?ReplyDelete
Alex: No, not all.Delete
He's cute. From a distance, anyway.ReplyDelete
Jeanne: What, you don't want to pet the alligator?Delete
Keep your ass away from me, Claude.ReplyDelete
Janie: It's not his ass he wants to get near you.Delete
It's such an unassuming name...Claude. I like it.ReplyDelete
Michael: Seems strange for a 'gator.Delete
You've gotta tell what's in that shack, man. Anything that would scare an alligator? I like it. Plus Claude is cool.ReplyDelete
Briane: You should schedule an interview with Claude and see if he'll tell you.Delete
Maybe he'll show up in something sometime, and you'll get your answer.
