Souvineers from the Everglades

I text message exchange I had with Marcus at about 4 p.m. this afternoon, which I could not post at work because I was unable to stop laughing:

Marcus: Dude! We just stopped at a gas station, and Coop found a back-scratcher made with a gator's hand!
Me: Buy it!
Marcus: Too late. After she saw it, she almost vomited. I'll try to find one later.

There are a few things I love about this exchange:
1. I think it's so funny that I can't stop laughing every time I read it. I am literally near tears with laughter. The notion of a back-scratcher made out of a gator paw is just too funny. Seriously, imagine handing it to someone when they ask for a back-scratcher.
2. As implied in the final sentence, I think Marcus might actually buy me one if he manages to find one again during his business trip to Florida. Imagine the great conversations I can start with that hanging on my wall.

why would you keep a perfectly good gator-hand back-scratcher on the wall? you should just ambush-back-scratch with it. have a camera standing by for reaction shots.
