An alligator got safely across Highway 80 in Pearl, Miss. — then the jokes started

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

In Pearl, Miss., this week, it wasn't a chicken but an alligator that was spotted crossing the road. Police helped the reptile get safely across Highway 80. One person responded to the Pearl Police Department's post about the incident by suggesting they give it a vest and make it an investigator. Someone else suggested, since it was on a highway, it might be a tailgater. Relax, everyone. I do the dumb jokes around here. So see you later, alligator.
