It's officially a new day for children's pool parties. Thanks to the genius of Bob Barrett, your child can now swim with alligators while partying. Don't worry, the alligators have their mouths taped shut.

Barrett believes that Alligator Attractions will rescue children and parents from the traditional, boring party. Somebody had to step up and change the game, right?

There have been a few complaints by parents, but Barrett has a permit for his gators (they're weapons, right?). It may be strange, eyebrow-raising, and just a little bit questionable, but admit it: It's awesome.
