Alligator disrupts traffic on I-10
by The Times-Picayune
Tuesday July 29, 2008, 8:01 AM

An alligator that somehow got into the eastbound left lane of Interstate 10 on the Bonne Carre Spillway has been hit by a vehicle and is slowing traffic to a crawl, state police said.

The alligator is still alive and a nuisance officer from St. Charles Parish has been dispatched to try and remove the animal, a Louisiana State Police spokesman said.

A call about the alligator came in about 7:15 a.m.

first mission trip we made to NOLA, I was driving one of the buses. View had been pretty much the same the whole trip. Dead deer, dead deer, dead deer. Then in La., thought I saw another dead deer on side of road. When I got close, realized it was a dead gator! To an old kentucky boy like me, well, that's not sumptin ya see everyday!

I once saw a huge snake across Hwy 70 in Eastern North Carolina. It mush have been 12-15 long. Aguy in a tractor trailer kept backing up and running over it, trying to kill it. I guess it was a Python or a Boa of some kind. I didn't get out to look.

A man who just died is delivered to a local mortuary wearing an expensive, expertly tailored black suit.

The blonde mortician asks the deceased's wife how she would like the body dressed. Addressing the widow she points out that the deceased husband does look good in the black suit he is already wearing.

The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the Blonde mortician a blank check and says, 'I don't care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.'

The widow returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her dead husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe; the suit fits him perfectly

She says to the mortician, 'Whatever this cost, I'm very satisfied. You did an excellent job and I' m very grateful. How much did you spend?' To her astonishment, the blonde mortician presents her with the blank check.

'There's no charge,' she says.

'No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue suit!' she says.

'Honestly, ma'am,' the blonde says, 'it cost nothing. You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband's size was brought in shortly after you left yesterday, and he was wearing an attractive blue suit. I asked his wife if she minded him going to his grave wearing a black suit instead, and she said it made no difference as long as he looked nice.'

'So I just switched the heads.'
