Let's see just quickly very funny video if you get a chance to see it kid was arrested at a mall in Florida for wrestling fake alligator. Now, he probably shouldn't have been doing that. But it was pretty funny to see. So there's this feature in the mall, and it has this kind of fake big rubber alligators sitting on it. And this kid dives on top of the alligator. And and pulls it into the pond with him, which is in the mall and starts wrestling with this fake alligator. And I I I hope he doesn't get a lot of time because it's funny. The quest for more likes.
