Today is a bad day to be a croc...
Heartbreaking doesn't begin to describe it. Earlier today, word came from the NAACP that crocodiles do not know how to play checkers. "We were shocked when we found out," said NAACP spokesperson Sarah Clemons, "All the work we do here at the National Archive Association of Crocodiles Period seems to have been for nothing. They can't even understand the simple game of checkers. It is the easiest game."
The tragedy was reported by CNN who aired raw footage of a group of crocodiles actively not knowing how to play checkers. "I just didn't understand," said Anderson Cooper, "Here I was fully thinking that crocodiles knew how to play checkers and all this time I was wrong. I was just so wrong."
When reached for comment, crocodiles responded by stating:
"It's really not that crazy. We are basically small dinosaurs, the fact that you just assumed we knew how to play checkers is absurd. Also, the media wants to highlight the fact that we, as a species, don't know how to play checkers, but no one gives a shit that we're very good at Mouse Trap. Crocodiles absolutely crush it in Mouse Trap, but I guess no one fucking cares."
