A Rare Talent

ninme noticed this bizarre story about a woman trying to enter Egypt with three crocodiles strapped to her waist, to which I've nothing to add except this line cracked me up
when the hysteria died down, she said, "everybody was admiring a woman who is able to tie crocodiles to her body."

Well, I mean, don't we all?
Actually, those of us who remember the last verse of the Battle of New Orleans know the woman may have been a suicide bomber. But one can't talk croc in the Weed household without inspiring me to recite my favorite Ogden Nash bit:

The Purist
I give you now Professor Twist
A conscientious scientist.
Trustees exclaim, "He never bungles!"
And send him off to distant jungles.
Camped by the tropic riverside
One day he misses blooming bride.
She had, the guide informed him later,
Been eaten by an alligator.
Professor Twist could not but smile.
"You mean," he said, "a crocodile."

Update: Trousered Ape asks: do these crocodiles make me look fat?
