    I wonder.....Tony Joe White claims that Louisiana has the meanest gators, and that Polk Salad Annie was meaner than the gators, so was she the original "mean girl"?

    The alligators around here have been active lately. Daisy, you posted this question smack in the middle of gator mating season here in Central Florida. On Sunday, a large gator attacked a man who was swimming in a popular lake, the man survived but has some impressive wounds. Monday, a 14 foot gator was captured because it was hanging out in a parking lot blocking access to a few businesses. Last night; an 8 foot gator was caught strolling down the side of a road next to apartments and a big shopping mall.

    I don't think I'll be out searching for any Polk Salad around here; at least not any time soon....;)

    Merci Cher "Daisy Annie" - I believe them folks were just braggin in song about those mean nasty gators. They catch 'em, season 'em & eat 'em . Now the story goes that meanest gators are still beneath the streets of NYC in the sewers and said to thriving on homeless & runaway kids... BUT then who knows..... LOL... love the song by the way....

    This is why I live in North Carolina. Even though it is still the south, I have never seen an alligator here. Gators like warm water and too I don't think they move this far up. Knock wood. Florida is famous for these dangerous creatures. I just don't think I could live there. Poppy

    AMOS MODES - Jerry Reed

    Yeah here comes Amos

    Now Amos Moses was a Cajun

    He lived by himself in the swamp

    He hunted alligator for a living

    He'd just knock them in the head with a stump

    The Louisiana law gonna get you Amos

    It ain't legal hunting alligator down in the swamp boy

    Now everyone blamed his old man

    For making him mean as a snake

    When Amos Moses was a boy

    His daddy would use him for alligator bait

    Tie a rope around his neck and throw him in the swamp

    Alligator man in the Louisiana bayou

    About forty-five minutes south of Tippitoe Louisiana

    Lived a man called Dr. Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah

    They raised up a son who could eat his weight in groceries

    Named him after a man of the cloth

    Called him Amos Moses

    Now the folks around south Louisiana

    Said Amos was a hell of a man

    He could trap the biggest meanest alligator

    And he'd just use one hand

    That's all he got left cause an alligator bit it

    Left arm gone clear up to the elbow

    Well the sheriff caught wind that Amos was up in the swamp

    Trading alligator skins

    So he snuck in the swamp gonna get the boy

    But he never came out

    Well I wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to

    Well you can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou

    About forty-five minutes south of Tippitoe Louisiana

    Lived a cat named Dr. Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah

    They raised up a son who could eat his weight in groceries

    Named him after a man of the cloth

    Called him Amos Moses

    I know son

    Make it count son

    About forty-five minutes south of Tippitoe Louisiana...

    * (I really like Tony Joe White's music! ... Awesome!).

    I have a Tony Joe White CD. It's nice blues. Louisiana so the song says.
