Gator Skin

Did you know that the thing that saved the Alligators roaming wild in the Everglades was Alligator farms? Not because they were breeding them and releasing them - au contrair, my friends. They breed them for handbags and shoes and particularly tasteless jackets. No, it was because when they started farming them the price of a gator skin went down from $400 dollars to about $20. Which somewhat took the bottom out of the black market and saved a few people from having the money to go to college. So now you know what I do.
