Crazy New Trend at Kids' Birthday Parties

Parents in Florida are taking entertainment at kids' parties to an extreme. For $175, you can rent a special guest to put in the pool with your children and their guests: a baby alligator!

Would your children enjoy hanging out in a pool with an alligator?

I live in Florida & I have never heard of this! I would never do this & I doubt any of my friends with young children would either.

Seriously? What ever happened to pin the tail on the donkey and a piñata? Do we really need to tape a poor baby alligator's mouth shut and subject it to swimming around frightened in a pool in order to entertain our children? What the hell?!?
