5 Year Old Boy Catches 800lb Gator

The Hippo's Ass is taking a few days off to go fishing. I am heading Up North to Northern Lower Michigan for a weekend of hanging out with some old school buddies, sitting on the boat, drowning a few worms and maybe, just maybe, catching a Walleye or two. We have a rule though, "You Catch Em, You Clean Em."

Which leads me to this particular story.

Harvesting an alligator that's 20 times your size is a piece of cake, according to 5-year-old Simon Hughes. "Well, its pretty much simple," said Simon who caught the alligator.

Simon's father said Simon is a natural born hunter, so an 800 pound alligator was no match for him. "Well I my got my gun out and shot him," the 5 year old said laughingly.


Sometimes we just need to get away from the craziness and put all the worries behind us. Thoreau had the right idea: head into the woods near a pond and simplify, simplify.

Have a great weekend folks.
The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way.
