A Visit with Jake the Alligator Man
We're just back from a weekend in Long Beach, WA, where I paid my usual respects to the town's most famous resident, Jake the Alligator Man. You regular readers of Weekly World News may recall his amazing adventures, recounting how Jake was found in the Florida Everglades, killed a Miami man and fathered an alligator baby (if not, click HERE).
Jake now has his own line of sportswear (click HERE) and his own fan club (if you join he'll send you a free Jake penny and a postcard).
We've personally spotted his stylish bumper-stickers as far away as Louisiana. But despite his fame, Jake is an alligator man of few words. When I asked why he was wearing a Santy Claus hat in July he answered with only a grin.
