Happy Halloween from Jake!

Happy Halloween from Jake!

This is Jake the Alligator Man. He is the most famous resident at Marsh’s Museum. Apparently he has been celebrating his 75th birthday for the past eleven years. He’s on his fifth wife. The item beside him in the photo is the key to the city. Not bad for a guy who sits in a glass box all day. Said glass box and the mirror behind it defeated most of my attempts at a decent photo, and I couldn’t convince him to climb out and pose. But there are plenty of photos of him online, if you’re curious. You can even join his fan club!

    Jake looks a little weird, so I think I’ll pass on the fan club thing. Can’t imagine why he’d have a key to the city. Maybe it’s a fake key to make him feel good so he doesn’t get his hands on the real key. Wait, what hands? Sheesh, this is confusing!
