Reggie Update

You already know, from reading this blog, that the Crocodile Hunter is coming to town. Here's the latest about our favorite reptile (NOT amphibian):

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Janice Hahn estimates the city has spent more than $107,000 in overtime to make sure the lake is staffed to warn people of Reggie's presence.

And, according to Russ Smith, curator of reptiles at the Los Angeles Zoo -- shown here, in an artist's conception of what it would be like if he met Reggie -- if Reggie is a male, then when his hibernation alarm clock goes off, Reggie will sing. "They do bellow during the springtime, calling for a mate," the curator said. "Kind of like a cross between a cow moo and a roar."

Am I truly the only one who thinks Reggie-gate is an hilarious public policy issue?

I mean, come on: it's an ALLIGATOR in the SECOND-BIGGEST CITY IN AMERICA, and the local government's only "solution" is to pay workers overtime to warn locals to refrain from using their own park. How pathetic is that?

But you tell me: should this be the last Reggie posting ever?

Maybe another post if baby-dangler Irwin shows up. I'm sure that would start another circus. Even Reggie's blog has taken a nap:

I've sworn off posting about Reggie, as I can't bear to see another column inch devoted to this stupid reptile.

There's not just a blog about Reggie, there's apparently a book and at least one Pedro joint serves a Reggie Burger made with real alligator.
