A Visit with Jake the Alligator Man


We're just back from a weekend in Long Beach, WA, where I paid my usual respects to the town's most famous resident, Jake the Alligator Man. You regular readers of Weekly World News may recall his amazing adventures, recounting how Jake was found in the Florida Everglades, killed a Miami man and fathered an alligator baby (if not, click HERE).

Jake now has his own line of sportswear (click HERE) and his own fan club (if you join he'll send you a free Jake penny and a postcard).


We've personally spotted his stylish bumper-stickers as far away as Louisiana. But despite his fame, Jake is an alligator man of few words.  When I asked why he was wearing a Santy Claus hat in July he answered with only a grin.

He's wearing a Santa hat in July because he's stylish. And green.

Very stylish indeed.

I think this fellow worthy of a ballad. Jake's story should be set to strings. Like SUMMER of '42 meets Jerry Lee Lewis.

Glad you enjoyed Jake's company and Richard the band Boo Frog from Portland Or. have a pretty good song called Jake the Alligator Man but Jake is always open for more music about one and only JAKE!
