Gator Basket

Yesterday, after watching the Buckeyes beat on Akron, I went over to the Black Swamp Arts Festival to get some lunch from one of the many vendors. As soon as I got there I saw a friend of mine stumbling out of the festival. I told him I was getting some food and he strongly recomended the Gator Basket.
At first, I thought "Oh sweet, I've never had gator before, and how appropriate for the Black Swamp," and then I started having second thoughts, and thought of three solid reasons why I shouldn't get the fried gator bites.
1. I hate alligators. They are cold blooded, cold hearted reptiles that kill people all the time.
2. It probably tastes like a swamp or an aquarium.
3. I am still sour about the Gator's dual NCAA championship victories last year.
And then my good companion opened my eyes. All of the reasons I hade for not eating the gator are the real reasons why I should eat the gator.
I should eat the gator for all the alligator biten victims in the world. I should bite back and not let my prejudices stand in the way of exploring new tastes. So I ordered the Gator Basket.
Sure enough it didn't taste like the Everglades, it was really pretty good. Yeah, most things fried do taste good and I would hate to say it tastes like chicken, but alligator meat really does taste like chicken, chewy chicken.
So eating the gator didn't just taste good, it felt good too.
