Which one? The one that involved beer or the one that didn't? :lol2:

What REALLY impresses me is how innovative Joe and his friends are. The having a cooler on each end of the rows shows. They have evolved faster then us upnort folk. :nod:

Really does taste like chicken but a tiny bit tougher.
As for the beer. I think I pm'ed mnmtranching about my little episode with the alligator and copious amounts of beer. You see, I was helping two of my friends plant plants on their farm and they had a cooler of beer at each end of the field. When we got to the end of the row we drank a cold one. This went on for some time and I wasn't used to it - not the work part - but the beer part. I figured I needed to get something to eat or I'd get sick. I hopped in a ford ranger and headed down the road to get a burger when I saw a tree had fallen over the road. It was about dusk so it looked like a tree anyway. But it wasn't. It was the biggest alligator I had ever seen in my life. It was stretched across the dirt road. I'm guessing it was 14-16 feet long cause that's about as wide as the road is and he took up every bit of it. In a moment of brilliance, I thought it would be a fantastic idea to kill this gator so we could have us a feast. With this in mind I drove the truck onto its back - only getting the right front tire square on him - then I put it in park and grabbed my pistol and went to get out. But when the door opened and my foot hit the ground the whole truck moved away from me as he squirmed out from under the tire. He literally moved the whole truck! All I got to see was the backside of this monster as he plowed off into the swamp. At this point I was dumbfounded and just stood there in sobering awe as my mind became clear as to all the little holes in my grand strategy. BTW - I'm pretty sure cleaning this gator's tail would have been similar to getting in the chute and cutting a brahma bull with no one holding his tail.
