When Karma Bites You On The Ass
Alcohol makes people stupid and for whatever reason that temporary idiocy often translates into risky behaviour. Often times a man will decide to get far too friendly with wildlife when his brain is polluted by the demon drink.
And this is exactly what happened in Northwest Australia recently. A local man was bombed, so seriously tanked that he was expelled from a local pub. So naturally, he decided to wander home.
As he passed by the Broome Crocodile Park, he decided that he might like to pet some of the wildlife. The 36 year old chap scaled the barbed wire fence and went over to the domicile of 16-foot-long monster papa Fatso. For some bizarre reason the partying tourist decided that he'd like to take the Saltwater Giant for a ride.
Naturally, the grumpy old croc was not feeling the idea of being a drunkard's beast of burden and decided to give him a good bite on the upper thigh as a token of his appreciation. The amazing part is that the world's largest reptile is well known for taking a man out in seconds, but almost inexplicably let the pisspot go.
When interviewed later, Michal Newman seemed to think that it was just a bit of silliness and that he was somehow brave for escaping the living dinosaur. I shouldn't have to tell you this, but Mr. Newman is the luckiest moron on the face of the planet. Saltwater Crocodiles just DO NOT let the average free meal go.
I suppose Fatso didn't like the taste of a pickled nut.
