"Crocodiles are easy. They try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first."


xxxxx― Steve Irwin


Too Much Of Anything Is Bad:

But too much good whiskey is barely enough.

Well Kept Secret: "Perhaps I could keep you half as well, if you would let me."


It Is Only Safe:

To mock a crocodile when you have crossed the river.

[[Shifter]]: More obvious than most, Bayou rather wears his primal self as a skin; quite literally. With scales and teeth and all manner of things that mark him as a freak among the ambling masses, he has a little trouble fitting in.
[[Ripper]]: Woe be tied those who enter the river unbidden, and take from it the secrets only a King should know.
[[Whickey Croc]]: If one can get past the 'smiling' face and the rich haze of bourbon, they might come to know a stalwart companion. He's really very friendly. ... No, really. ... Stop laughing.
[[Local]]: Though local, he's not a well-known face around these parts just yet. But, perhaps you knew him before ... well, before it all.
[[Secrets]]: Keeping his mouth shut is a well-learned trait. It's opening it that's a problem.
[[Food]]: There is little finer in this world than a good meal prepared by caring hands; this is his comfort, and connection to a world that did not want him, but begrudgingly accepted him. His favourite is cajun cuisine and he's more than happy to share, as long as you can handle the heat. Papa Gator, where you at, baby?! Ai-eeee!


Oh, Pity The Poor Glutton:

Whose troubles all begin In struggling on and on to turn What's out into what's in.

Never Smile At A Crocodile - Peter Pan (Disney)


Never smile at a crocodile

No, you can't get friendly

With a crocodile

Don't be taken in

By his welcome grin

He's imagining how well

You'd fit within his skin


Never smile at a crocodile

Never tip your hat

And stop to talk awhile

Never run,

Walk away,

Say good-night,

Not good-day

Clear the aisle

But never smile at Mister Crocodile


You may very well be well bred

Lots of etiquette in your head

But there's always some special case,

Time or place

To forget etiquette


For instance:


Never smile at a crocodile

No, you can't get friendly

With a crocodile

Don't be taken in

By his welcome grin

He's imagining how well

You'd fit within his skin


Never smile at a crocodile

Never dip your hat

And stop to talk awhile

Never run,

Walk away,

Say good-night,

Not good-day

Clear the aisle

But never smile at Mister Crocodile.

Man of Constant Sorrow - Home Free


I am a man of constant sorrow

I've seen trouble all my days

I bid farewell to ol' Kentucky

The place where I was born and raised


(The place where he was born and raised)


For six long years I've been in trouble

No pleasure here on earth I've found

For in this world I'm bound to ramble

I have no friends to help me now


(He has no friends to help him now)


It's fair thee well, my old true lover

I never expect to see you again

For I'm bound to ride that Northern Railroad

Perhaps I'll die upon this train


(Perhaps he'll die upon this train)


You can bury me in some deep valley

For many years where I may lay

And you may learn to love another

While I am sleeping in my grave


(While he is sleeping in his grave)


Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger

My face you never will see no more

But there is one promise that is given

I'll meet you on God's golden shore


(He'll meet you on God's golden shore)
