He places the alligator on the bar and turns to the astonished patrons.
“You are about to see something amazing,” the cowboy announced. “This alligator is specially trained. I’m going to take out my junk and he will bite down on it and still leave it completely unscathed. In return for this spectacle, you will all buy me a drink.”
The crowd murmurs their approval, so the cowboy unzips his jeans and brings out his junk. The alligator’s jaws open wide and snap down on it.
The crowd falls silent. The alligator’s jaws are clamped around the cowboy’s junk for a full minute. Finally, he grabs a wine bottle, bangs the alligator on the head and sure enough, his junk is completely unscathed. The crowd cheers.
The cowboy announces, “Now I will give $100 to anyone willing to try it!”
The patrons fall dead silent again. They steal glances around to see if anyone will dare.
Finally, a woman at the back raises her hand. “I’ll give it a go if you promise not to hit me on the head with a wine bottle.”
