A young blonde was on Spring Break in the Everglades. She wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.
After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle" attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, "Maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator! Then I can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!"
The shopkeeper said, "By all means, be my guest. Maybe you'll be lucky and catch yourself a big one!"
Determined, the blonde turned and headed for the swamps, intent on catching herself an alligator.
Later in the day, the shopkeeper is driving home, when he spots the young woman standing waist deep in the water, a shotgun in hand. Just then, he sees a huge 9 foot alligator swimming quickly toward her.
She takes aim, kills the creature and with a great deal of effort hauls it on to the bank. Lying nearby were seven more dead creatures. The shopkeeper watches in amazement.
Then the blonde flips the alligator onto its back, and frustrated, shouts out, "Damn it, this one isn't wearing any shoes either!"
