Gator Barf Ingredients

Not all jobs are created equal, and some are truly Floridian.  Like mimes.  I've seen plenty of them at EPCOT and elsewhere around Disney property, but in my home state of NJ?  Not so much.  

Then, of course, you've got your gator wrangler and your gator processor.  According to a story in the Orlando Sentinel, the processor is the lucky gal who gets to peruse dead gator stomachs.  Gators aren't particularly fussy, based on what the Orange County gator processor has found - including a GI Joe action figure, golf balls, shotgun shells, a lighter, spark plugs, glass, lawn mower parts, milk jugs, and beer cans.  Truly, all the makin's of a great Orlando party.  

Notably absent, museum tickets and a Tolstoy novel.  You can really tell a lot about a city based on what you find inside the local gutted gator, dontcha think?
