A man was walking in rural Florida, and he saw a toddler playing by the river, when sudden a crocodile leaped out of the water, snapped up the child and was gone in flash.
Shocked, the man ran to the nearest house where a middle-aged man with a straw hat was sitting on the porch smoking a corn pibe.
Short of breath, the man told about the sight he'd just seen by the river. The man with the hat took his pibe out of his mouth and regarded him for a moment. Then he turned to the house and yelled: "Maw! See? I told ya sommin was gittin' those chilluns!"
