I once spent Christmas in Florida. Sounds delightful doesn't it? It wasn't. I was holed up in a backwater burgh known as Homestead, a featureless little community with a population as genetically diverse as the Ozarks.
To relieve my ennui I drove through the nearby Everglades, stopping at roadside attractions which boasted of their superior gator wrassling and palmetto bug jam. I tried neither, but it got me wondering about the Everglade's version of Sasquatch, the skunk ape. While we all known the skunk ape's diet consists mostly of armadillos and key lime pie, do any of us understand how the beast avoids the snapping jaws of the area's crocodilians?
And furthermore what would happen were Hillbilly Sasquatch to square off against an alligator? Who would emerge victorious?
No one can know for certain, but the video below might begin to tell the tale.
My pleasure to inform, as always.
