The old fellow in southern Louisiana owned a nice acreage. There were lots of other big houses around the area, many of them nestled up against a small river that meandered through the area. Out back, close to the river, across a big lawn and nestled in some trees, there was a large pond. It was perfect for swimming and relaxing. He had it fixed it up nice with picnic tables, some apple and peach trees, a nice firepit and some lawn chairs.
Since he hadn’t checked out the pond for a few weeks, he decides to go down to the pond. He figures he would pick some fruit at the same time, so he takes along a five-gallon bucket.
As he nears the pond, he hears voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he comes closer, he sees it is a bunch of young women from the neighbourhood, skinny-dipping in his pond. He coughs a bit, making the women aware of his presence. They all crowd down to the deep end of the pond.
He pulls up a lawn chair covered with a bunch of their clothes. He sits down in another one, right on top of a bunch more of their clothes. He puts his feet on the other chair.
One of the women shouts to him, “We’re not coming out until you leave!”
The old man smiles and says, “Well, I didn’t come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked. Really.”
Holding the bucket up he then says, ‘I’m just here to feed the alligator…’
