Yet another excuse not to mow the lawn

Let's face it guys, we spend a lifetime stacking up those great excuses for mowing the lawn another day.  Well a reptile keeper in Australia has the best one I've heard to date.  Elvis ate his mower.  And Elvis is a 16 foot alligator.

Visitors watch as Elvis, a giant saltwater crocodile swims next to a lawnmower in his pool at the Australian Reptile Park at Gosford, Australia, Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2011.

It seems that the 1,100 pound reptile didn't like the noise of the mower disturbing him, or maybe he didn't think they were doing a good enough job.  Either way, Elvis came out after the keeper, who wisely put the mower between himself and the charging gator.  So Elvis grabbed the mower, raised it up off the ground and took it back in the water with him.  Then again, maybe Elvis just had some water lilies that had overgrown.
