I have a complaint for the Florida Department of Tourism. On our way to Key West, Florida, we drove over a section of Interstate 75 called "Alligator Alley;" I kid you not; that's the way it's labelled on the road map.
I was excited. I had my camera ready. For over 100 miles I had my camera ready! I did not see one alligator; not one slimy tail, not one bulging eyeball, not one huge jaw. Okay, I admit that I may have seen evidence that alligators had been there. Huge, hungry, ferocious alligators. Alligators huge, hungry, and ferocious enough to gobble up entire vehicles and spit out their shredded tires. There were slabs of shredded rubber strewn about on the highway. My theory is the alligators ate the vehicles, but had no use for the rubber....not wanting to hinder their reproductive capabilities.
Also, I saw several instances where innocent pedestrians had been gobbled up as well, and crosses with flowers on them had been placed at the site of the snacking in memory of the late lunchee.
Yes I saw all of the evidence, but no actual alligators. This amounts to a misrepresentation. That section of Interstate 75 between Tampa and Homestead (I hope I have the names of the cities correctly; I'm writing this at 10:30 p.m. and my brain is sooooooooo tired!) that section of highway should not be called Alligator Alley; it should be called Gator Gone
