Bartering For Beer

I'm sure we can all empathize with this thirsty Floridian. Who among us hasn't been short of cash, in need of a beer, with an unneeded alligator lying around? Fernando Caignet Aguilera simply wanted to trade a four foot alligator for beer at a local convenience store:
A man who tried to trade a live, four-foot alligator for a pack of beer at a Miami convenience store was cited for charges related to illegally capturing the gator, officials said. 
Fernando Caignet Aguilera was cited after he tried to trade the gator for beer at the Santa Ana Market at 3000 Northwest 12th Avenue back on Dec. 10, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said Tuesday. (More...)
In another news article we learned that Aguilera had a specific beer in mind. "Not Bud Light, Corona" says the intrepid trader.


  1. The problem was that he didn't have the alligator prepared correctly for serving with beer. And that he wanted bad beer.

    1. True. If he'd brought in a big pot of Alligator Jambalaya or Étouffée, he might have gotten somewhere.
