We love the punch line so much, we're gonna give it to you first.
An Okeechobee man lost his arm to a gator in (get ready....) Nubbin Slough.
The reason the guy only has a nubbin of a left arm might have something to do with this:
He was drinking, according to witnesses.
So Kasey Edwards, who said he never paid "too much mind" to alligators swimming in canals,
is now paying attention.
He's in the hospital, his arm severed three to four inches above the elbow.
Gotta give him some credit. He had to swim out of that canal. With one arm.
