It sounds like that guy was performing a pretty dangerous task.
I guess someone should have given him a hand.

An ironic twist on the old proverb. What if the hand that feeds you is itself edible?

I find these jokes in very bad taste... likewise the crocodile found the chap's hand in poor taste.

If this wasn't in NG I would have written it off as good image editing.

"A Nile crocodile, armed and dangerous"... "A farewell to arm"... ha ha. Yes these are in bad taste, but they still make me chuckle. From what I remember about crocs, they like to let their meat rot before they find it tasty, so that must be why it didn't wolf down the arm, lucky for the vet dude.

I guess crocs would find zombies really tasty, then. Pre-rotted, ready to eat flesh. Does anyone know, if you raise one from a hatchling, do they bond with you? I'm thinking croc eggs on E-Bay. Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Kits.
There are folks down here who've eaten nothing but dehydrated Y2K rations this decade. There's a market for ZA Crocs, I tell ya.

Furthermore, could the crocodile's thick hide be so tough, zombie people couldn't gnaw through it?
Just a possible sell point.

I'm resisting the urge to make that crocodile my profile image.

I'm guessing you were a Shockodile backer? I mean, that's ok if you were. It's only the Hellcat fans that I'm working on forgiving. :)

You know, that crocodile is going to be hungry again in another half hour.

You really have to hand it to the croc though.
