Captain Hook: The Early Years

Before he became the tyrannical scourge of the seas, James Hook was a kind and gentle man, putting himself through college as a masseuse at Neverland’s World O’Gators theme park. While beloved by a certain young alligator for Hook’s light touch, an interruption in the feeding schedule would soon change their destinies…

  4. The Original Jane says:

    You beat me to it! Love the storyline and photo!

  5. …little more to the right…yyyyeeeeeeaaahhhh that’s it.

  6. Where’s the Impending Doom tag?

  7. The tiny teeny tosey scales!

  8. That’s NTMTOM for ya. If the photos don’t get ya, the text slays ya ded!

  9. In the immortal words of Steve Irwind:
    Crikey! Isn’t she a little beauty!

  10. I never thought I’d find an crocigator cute, but the look on that one’s face is TOO sublime! And those little toes . . . !

  11. Oh, and let’s not forget the immortal words of Lewis Carroll:

    How doth the little crocodile
    Improve his shining tail,
    And pour the waters of the Nile
    On every golden scale!
    How cheerfully he seems to grin,
    How neatly spreads his claws,
    And welcomes little fishes in
    With gently smiling jaws!

    Is this not a perfect example???

  12. Who would have thought that alligators liked back scritches? Too bad their, erm, ‘snappy’ personalities as adults deter most people from reaching out to indulge them….

  13. Careful, this is how it starts, then you convert your dorm bathroom into a reptile habitat, then you end up in a Florida neighborhood with lax zoning rules.

    He would have been a masseur… “masseuse” is feminine.

    funny …. I don’t reMEMber converting my dorm bathroom into a reptile habitat.

    Yet here I am, in a Florida neighborhood with lax zoning rules !!!

    PS, Kar: that last phrase would give you elebenty -nineteen extra points, in
    a game of Scrabble!!! (x’s, z’s, etc) 🙂

  16. Saw on tv, this guy got a baby gator as a child, kept it in his dorm bathroom (the floor agreed to it) and ended up living in FL with a gator-only pool.

    Wife was wary of this as a housepet but ok as long as the gator stayed off their bed. Next shot was it sleeping on the master bed.

  17. I liked it when he said,about little reptiles, “What a lil’ champion!”

  18. 😯 was it de-teethed??

  19. Yeah, this pic leaves me a little apprehensive for those fingers…..

  20. Not to my knowledge. Could you imagine the dental bill for pulling those teeth? Plus, don’t they regrow them like sharks?

    A lot of gendered profession names are gradually becoming gender-neutral. Either this is one of them or it’s a regional thing because I’ve literally never heard “masseur.”
