Florida. Where people go to retire, do cocaine, or stand their ground.

Now The Sunshine State has something to actually be proud of: James Barney Jr.

James is nine years old, and likes to live on the edge. Not that bush league stuff like snorting Pixy Stix or playing WoW. James went swimming and fought a 400 pound ‘gator.

James was calm about his reaction to the encounter with this reptile: “I just immediately hit it and I let it go a little so I pry its jaw open.”

He walked away with a few bites, and an alligator tooth. No bully will ever mess with James again. You don’t fuck around with the kid who sucker punched an alligator. Know more.
