"That's a pretty good price for an alligator head..."

I couldn't mention this before, as I didn't want to open myself up to the possibility of being raped and murdered, but Tony has been out of town on his little gize vacay for the last four days. The kids and I picked him up from the airport a few hours ago.

He was in Texas and Louisiana for some pivotal footy game of some sort, and this is what he brought home for the boys:



It's an alligator head. A real live dead one. Gross. And he got three of them:



And they smell funny.

When I said, "Why'd you get three of them?" (Cuz, ya know, I thought maybe the boys could share one disgusting alligator head.) He goes, "Well, they were only $11.99. That's a pretty good price for an alligator head, wouldn't you say?" Um. I dunno.

Anywho, the boys are going googoogaga for their alligator heads. They ran and got their alligator toes (the ones uncle Tom got for them in Louisiana last year) from their keepsakes boxes, so they could play with the alligator toes and heads together.



Now they want to collect alligator body parts, until they have a whole real live dead alligator!

Glad Tony's home. We missed him.

That has got to be the coolest gift ever for a boy and the worst gift ever for a mom of a boy. Triple yuck!

Nastay. To the 10th degree.

I dunno...I just looked on eBay and there is a WHOLESALE LOT OF 10 FLORIDA GATOR HEAD SKULL ALLIGATOR going for $49.99. That works out to about $5/head. Tony got ripped. Even with the $13 shipping.

They look like plastic to me. Are you sure they are real? Did it come with a certificate or something?

Tony needs to start couponing, he might have been able to get those alligator heads for next to nothing.

We almost got those for our boys when we took the trip with Tom and Katie. But we thought they were too expensive...

Landee everyone knows that the asking price and the final sale price are always different.

Perhaps it was listing a low-ball offer and in the end it was more like $15 a head in which case Drug Lord Tony got a steal.

Definitely a cool gift! Almost as great as the fossil your dad brought back from Brazil!
