Man ‘throws alligator through fast food restaurant’s window’

Florida is a special place. My parents are there now, but they don’t like to stay too long. might get an alligator thrown at them.

A fast food restaurant got a customer it wasn’t expecting when a live alligator was tossed through a drive-through window by a patron.

Joshua James, 23, wanted to play a practical joke on a friend working at the Wendy’s restaurant in Florida when he decided to hurl the reptile into the building in October.

“It was just a stupid prank that he did that’s now turning into this,” James’ mother, Linda James, told local broadcaster WPTV, adding that her son is a huge fan of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.

“He’s a prankster. He does stuff like this because he thinks it’s funny.”

Officials retrieved the animal from the restaurant’s kitchen, taped its jaws shut and released it to a nearby canal.

James faces charges of aggravated assault and unlawful possession, and transportation of an alligator.

Bad idea: alligator allowed to greet Michigan restaurant patrons

When I think Port Huron, Michigan, I think cajun. So why not have an alligator meet restaurant patrons. Because they are eating machines and most lizards are Salmonella factories. Maybe they should install a petting zoo while they’re at it.

A 4-foot long alligator named Wally will be allowed to greet patrons of a Michigan cajun.gator.dec.13restaurant.

The City Council voted 4-2 on Monday to allow American alligators in its central business district.

Wally will greet guests at Cajun Gator. The restaurant is expected to open within the next week.
