    Uh oh! This is REAL, guys!

    Don't go to the bathroom on October 28th. CIA intelligence reports
    that a major plot is planned for that day. Anyone who takes a poop
    on the 28th will be bitten on the ass by an alligator. Reports
    indicate that organized groups of alligators are planning to rise
    up into unsuspecting American's toilet bowls and bite them when they
    are doing their dirty business.

    I usually don't send emails like this, but I got this information
    from a reliable source. It came from a friend of a friend whose
    cousin is dating this girl whose brother knows this guy whose wife
    knows this lady whose husband buys hotdogs from this guy who knows a
    shoeshine guy who shines the shoes of a mailroom worker who has a friend who's drug dealer sells drugs to another mailroom worker who works in the CIA building. He apparently overheard two guys talking in the bathroom about alligators and came to the conclusion that we are going to be
    attacked.

    So it must be true
    If you don't get it, it's a spoof off of the "Don't go to the mall on halloween" email rumor.

    But this one's real! I can FEEL it!

    Well you may see it as a laughing matter, but I for one will avoid all toilets on that day.


    Hmm.....how do the alligators know which day they are supposed to strike...I mean are they given watches or something?

    I second that notion. Better to play it safe.

    We don't celebrate halloween here in Australia so that the threat of alligators doesn't bother me. Besides, I could just call up the Crocidile Hunter if I had a problem

    Good thing you're scared ..........less, cuz you don't wanna take one that day!

    And you can't go to the mall halloween because a girl's friend's, friend's boyfriend who was Arabian (note the flaw in the story - Arabian? they still almost like us!) told her not to! so of course she did the LOGICAL thing and forwarded it through e-mail instead of calling the authorites. So Duh! Don't go to the mall, people! because obviously we've ........ed off a girl's boyfriend!

    Is Australlia what it looks like in the movies? You know, with the tumble weed and the sand and the long stretches of roads? I think that's neat. I'd give up halloween in a second to live in Australlia. The Serengeti Plain is decent though. It serves my purposes.

    about the alligator thing: I think I'm safer right here, and there are more than 10'000.000 people in Bogotá, I don't think there are all those alligators...
