So you like fishing? Here, gator, gator, gator…

alligator eats peopleI don’t know the story behind these pictures but I bet it went something like this. A guy decided to go fishing where “no man has gone before.” He got a bit tired and relaxed by the hot sun and stopped paying attention. Two little eyes popped up from the water… tadam, tadam, tadam. The next thing he knew is his body was being thrashed around by something a lot bigger than him. For a second he felt his bones breaking but he didn’t feel much thanks to a healthy pump of adrenaline. He fought but it wasn’t his day, moment or battle.

Like father, like son…

Dumbasses with tattoed foreheads.MARCH 18–Meet the Bebees. Father Floyd, 48, and his son Justin, 21, were arrested last year (on different dates) in central Florida. As you can tell from the below mug shots, the Bebees are forehead tattoo enthusiasts. Another of Bebee’s kids, Floyd III, is locked up until 2016 on a variety of felony convictions. And while the 23-year-old inmate has yet to get his head inked, he does have a swastika on his left leg, and the phrases “Time Served” and “White Pride” on his right leg. In a TSG interview, Floyd Bebee, a father of eight, said that he has a tattoo on the back of his head reading “Got-R-Did.”

$22.7M gain on a $300 investment.

Tampa, FL (AHN) – A 77-year-old woman filed a $22.7 million lawsuit against the city of Tampa for not paying back a loan given by her great-grandmother during the Civil War.

Joan Kennedy Biddle, said that her ancestor Thomas Pugh Kennedy loaned the city $300, and in return received a promissory note, with the city promising to give the money back. The note was dated June 21, 1861.

“This thing has been in the family since the date of the note, and it has never been repaid,” Biddle told Fox News. “My daddy told me, and I certainly believe him.”

David Smith, the city attorney, said that the claim would not be considered valid in court. Biddle’s attorney, however, fired back that the note was issued during a time when the state had no statutes on the note.

According to the UPI, the suit is seeking the total amount of the loan, plus an annual interest of 8 percent.

The case was filed at the city’s Hillsborough Circuit Court.
